Moon* ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 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 ∠18° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1912" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2032 after 1 day on 23 June 2032 at 11:32.
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.
The Moon is 13 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°.
8 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 June 2032 at 14:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 374 820 km (232 902 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 652 km (225 342 mi).
2 days after ascending node on 19 June 2032 at 13:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 July 2032 at 05:24 in ♉ Taurus.
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.
At 16:28 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.677°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.659° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 5 July 2032 at 14:56.
In 1 day 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.
