Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1902" and ∠1894".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2032.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 400 of Meeus index or 1353 from Brown series.
Length of current 400 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes. 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°).
8 days after point of apogee on 16 May 2032 at 22:18 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 May 2032 at 02:49 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 376 785 km (234 123 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 645 km (228 444 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 23 May 2032 at 06:27 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 June 2032 at 02:41 in ♉ Taurus.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 11 May 2032 at 22:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.649°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.672° in the next southern standstill on 26 May 2032 at 06:23 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
