Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 11% and growing larger. The 3 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 3 November 2032 at 05:45.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1895" and ∠1936".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2032 after 10 days on 17 November 2032 at 06:42.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 406 of Meeus index or 1359 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 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 2 hours and 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠248.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠286.1°.
8 days after point of apogee on 28 October 2032 at 18:22 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 November 2032 at 15:20 in ♓ Pisces.
The Moon is 378 313 km (235 073 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 372 km (228 274 mi).
4 days after ascending node on 2 November 2032 at 09:04 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 November 2032 at 12:07 in ♉ Taurus.
4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 09:19 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.070°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.095° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 19 November 2032 at 06:10.
In 10 days on 17 November 2032 at 06:42 in ♉ Taurus 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.
