Moon* ♍ Virgo
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 2% and getting smaller. The 28 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 27 August 2032 at 19:33.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2032 after 15 days on 19 September 2032 at 09:30.
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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 403 of Meeus index or 1356 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes. It is 45 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠166.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠189.3°.
Moon is at apogee at 19:58. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 21 August 2032 at 03:52 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 18 September 2032 at 14:05 in ♓ Pisces.
This apogee Moon is 406 561 km (252 625 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2032. It is 1 153 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 148 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
9 days after descending node on 25 August 2032 at 09:01 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 September 2032 at 21:41 in ♎ Libra.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 29 August 2032 at 03:57 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.299°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.181° at the point of next southern standstill on 12 September 2032 at 21:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day on 4 September 2032 at 20:57 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
