Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 25 April 2032 at 15:10.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1914"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1914" and ∠1905".

Pink Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2032 after 26 days on 25 May 2032 at 02:37.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 2 May 2032 at 16:02
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 9 May 2032 at 13:36
  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 17 May 2032 at 09:43
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 25 May 2032 at 02:37

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 399 / 1352

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 399 of Meeus index or 1352 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠44.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠44.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠73.2°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 19 April 2032 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 May 2032 at 20:49 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 374 501 km

The Moon is 374 501 km (232 704 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 512 km (229 604 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 25 April 2032 at 21:52 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 May 2032 at 20:11 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 22:45 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.640°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.649° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 11 May 2032 at 22:35.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 9 May 2032 at 13:36 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
