Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1873" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2032 after 15 days on 25 May 2032 at 02:37.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 13:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 400 of Meeus index or 1353 from Brown series.
29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 400. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 401 length.
Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
5 days after point of perigee on 3 May 2032 at 20:49 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 May 2032 at 22:18 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 382 687 km (237 791 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 274 km (251 204 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 8 May 2032 at 20:11 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 May 2032 at 06:27 in ♏ Scorpio.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 28 April 2032 at 22:45 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.640°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.649° in the next northern standstill on 11 May 2032 at 22:35 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
