Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2032 after 14 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 05:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 403 of Meeus index or 1356 from Brown series.
29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes is the length of new lunation 403. It is 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 404 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠166.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠189.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 August 2032 at 17:16 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 405 002 km (251 657 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 532 km (252 607 mi).
8 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 August 2032 at 19:55 in ♎ Libra.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.514°. Next 10 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.
