Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 24 November 2032 at 22:48.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♎ Libra

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♎ Libra tropical zodiac sector.

Lunation 406 / 1359

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 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 8 December 2032 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 401 606 km

The Moon is 401 606 km (249 546 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 105 km (229 973 mi).

Moon before ascending node

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

Moon before southern standstill

9 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 5 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 4 days

In 4 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.
