Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 10 November 2032 at 11:33.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♈ Aries

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1966"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2032 after 3 days on 17 November 2032 at 06:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 406 / 1359

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 406 of Meeus index or 1359 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.63 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠248.6°

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°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 15:20. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 28 October 2032 at 18:22 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 367 372 km

This perigee Moon is 367 372 km (228 274 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 864 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 984 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 2 November 2032 at 09:04 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 November 2032 at 12:07 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

11 days 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 northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 6 November 2032 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.070°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.095° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 November 2032 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 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.
