Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 6 August 2032 at 05:11.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2032 after 13 days on 21 August 2032 at 01:47.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 403 of Meeus index or 1356 from Brown series.
Length of current 403 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:16, this is 14 days after last perigee on 23 July 2032 at 18:45 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 August 2032 at 03:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
This apogee Moon is 406 532 km (252 607 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 124 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 177 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 August 2032 at 19:55 in ♎ Libra.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.514°. Next 9 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.
After 13 days on 21 August 2032 at 01:47 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
