Crescent ♐ Sagittarius
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 27% and growing larger. The 5 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 4 September 2032 at 20:57.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1848" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2032 after 8 days on 19 September 2032 at 09:30.
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 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 404 of Meeus index or 1357 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2032. It is 11 minutes longer 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 46 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 17 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠189.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠215.1°.
6 days after point of apogee on 3 September 2032 at 19:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 September 2032 at 14:05 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 387 939 km (241 054 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 032 km (222 471 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 8 September 2032 at 21:41 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 September 2032 at 16:10 in ♈ Aries.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 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 2 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 8 days on 19 September 2032 at 09:30 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
