Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 4 October 2032 at 13:26.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1837"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1921".

Hunter Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2032 after 11 days on 18 October 2032 at 18:58.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 405 / 1358

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 405 of Meeus index or 1358 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.68 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠215.1°

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°.

Moon after apogee

6 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 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 October 2032 at 21:27 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 390 146 km

The Moon is 390 146 km (242 425 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 921 km (224 887 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 6 October 2032 at 02:03 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 19 October 2032 at 02:27 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

12 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.064° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 October 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 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.
