Moon* ♐ Sagittarius
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 2% and getting smaller. The 28 days old Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 24 November 2032 at 22:48.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1837" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2032 after 15 days on 16 December 2032 at 20:49.
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.
The Moon is 28 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.
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°.
5 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 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 December 2032 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
The Moon is 390 292 km (242 516 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 105 km (229 973 mi).
1 day after ascending node on 29 November 2032 at 16:30 in ♎ Libra. 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 12 December 2032 at 17:34 in ♈ Aries.
1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
12 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.128° at the point of next southern standstill on 3 December 2032 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 1 day 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.
