Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 17 November 2032 at 06:42.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♌ Leo

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1789"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1789" and ∠1943".

Beaver Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2032 after 24 days on 16 December 2032 at 20:49.

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 406 / 1359

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 before perigee

8 days after point of perigee on 13 November 2032 at 15:20 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 400 555 km

The Moon is 400 555 km (248 893 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 371 km (251 264 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 15 November 2032 at 12:07 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 November 2032 at 16:30 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 19 November 2032 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.095°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.128° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 December 2032 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 2 December 2032 at 20:53 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
