Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 23 June 2032 at 11:32 UTC.
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 first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1888".
The Full Moon this days is the Strawberry of June 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 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°.
9 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 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 June 2032 at 14:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 370 644 km (230 308 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 652 km (225 342 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 19 June 2032 at 13:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 July 2032 at 05:24 in ♉ Taurus.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 22 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.677°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.659° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 July 2032 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
