Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 23 June 2032 at 11:32.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1952" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2032 after 28 days on 22 July 2032 at 18:51.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 401 of Meeus index or 1354 from Brown series.
Length of current 401 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 402 length.
Length of current synodic month is 25 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 38 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠108.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.6°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 13 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2032 at 14:55 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 367 238 km (228 191 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 652 km (225 342 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 19 June 2032 at 13:56 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 July 2032 at 05:24 in ♉ Taurus.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 22 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.677°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.659° in the next northern standstill on 5 July 2032 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 7 July 2032 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
