Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 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 ∠25° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1928" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2032 after 23 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 21 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.
Length of current 402 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 403 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠166.3°. 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°).
4 days after point of perigee on 23 July 2032 at 18:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 August 2032 at 17:16 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 371 695 km (230 961 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 532 km (252 607 mi).
11 days after its ascending node on 16 July 2032 at 18:15 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2032 at 06:13 in ♉ Taurus.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 20 July 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.579°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.514° in the next northern standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini.
After 8 days on 6 August 2032 at 05:11 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
