Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 4 October 2032 at 13:26.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1817" and ∠1920".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2032 after 12 days on 18 October 2032 at 18:58.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 405 of Meeus index or 1358 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 19 minutes. It is 1 hour and 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 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠215.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠248.6°.
5 days after point of apogee on 1 October 2032 at 03:03 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 October 2032 at 21:27 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 394 447 km (245 098 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 921 km (224 887 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♏ Scorpio at 02:03 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 12 days later on 19 October 2032 at 02:27 in ♉ Taurus.
At 02:03 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
11 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 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.064° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 October 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 12 days on 18 October 2032 at 18:58 in ♈ Aries 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.
