Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 26 September 2032 at 09:12.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Synodic month length 29.69 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠189.3°

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°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 18 September 2032 at 14:05 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 1 October 2032 at 03:03 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 403 616 km

The Moon is 403 616 km (250 795 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 951 km (252 246 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 21 September 2032 at 16:10 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 October 2032 at 02:03 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 25 September 2032 at 11:10 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.115°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.064° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 October 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 4 October 2032 at 13:26 in ♎ Libra 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.
