Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 67% and growing larger. The 9 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 1 day on 15 July 2032 at 18:32.
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 ∠16° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2032 after 5 days on 22 July 2032 at 18:51.
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 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 402 of Meeus index or 1355 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 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 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 17 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠140.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠166.3°.
6 days after point of apogee on 11 July 2032 at 07:50 in ♍ Virgo. 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 23 July 2032 at 18:45 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 387 417 km (240 730 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 602 km (222 825 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 16 July 2032 at 18:15 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2032 at 06:13 in ♉ Taurus.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
11 days since the previous standstill on 5 July 2032 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.659°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.579° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 July 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 5 days on 22 July 2032 at 18:51 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.
