Gibbous ♈ Aries
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 71% and getting smaller. The 20 days old Moon is in ♈ Aries.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 22 July 2032 at 18:51.
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 ∠11° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2032 after 24 days on 21 August 2032 at 01:47.
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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
3 days after point of perigee on 23 July 2032 at 18:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 7 August 2032 at 17:16 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 368 091 km (228 721 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 532 km (252 607 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 16 July 2032 at 18:15 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2032 at 06:13 in ♉ Taurus.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
7 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 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.514° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini.
In 9 days on 6 August 2032 at 05:11 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
