Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days 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 about ∠23° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1775" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2032 after 11 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 3 days 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 7 August 2032 at 17:16 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 August 2032 at 03:52 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 403 703 km (250 849 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 879 km (221 754 mi).
11 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 August 2032 at 19:55 in ♎ Libra.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.514°. Next 7 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 11 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.
