Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1969"

Synodic month length 29.6 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠140.6°

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°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 18:45. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 11 July 2032 at 07:50 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 7 August 2032 at 17:16 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 358 602 km

This perigee Moon is 358 602 km (222 825 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 906 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 754 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

6 days after ascending node on 16 July 2032 at 18:15 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2032 at 06:13 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 20 July 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.579°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.514° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
