Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 81% and growing larger. The 10 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 16 June 2032 at 03:00.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠7° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1841" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2032 after 3 days on 23 June 2032 at 11:32.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 401 of Meeus index or 1354 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 25 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 38 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠108.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠140.6°.
5 days after point of apogee on 13 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 June 2032 at 14:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 389 292 km (241 895 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 652 km (225 342 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 13:56 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 2 July 2032 at 05:24 in ♉ Taurus.
At 13:56 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
11 days since the previous standstill on 8 June 2032 at 07:17 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.688°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.677° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 3 days on 23 June 2032 at 11:32 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
