Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2032 after 15 days on 21 August 2032 at 01:47.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 14:41 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 402 of Meeus index or 1355 from Brown series.
29 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 402. 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°).
12 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 August 2032 at 17:16 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 403 582 km (250 774 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 532 km (252 607 mi).
7 days after its descending node on 29 July 2032 at 06:13 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 August 2032 at 19:55 in ♎ Libra.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.514°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.386° in the next southern standstill on 16 August 2032 at 13:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
