Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2032 after 14 days on 16 December 2032 at 20:49.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 20:53 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 407 of Meeus index or 1360 from Brown series.
29 days, 13 hours and 24 minutes is the length of new lunation 407. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 408 length.
Length of current synodic month is 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠286.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠315.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
6 days after point of apogee on 25 November 2032 at 14:16 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 December 2032 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 385 566 km (239 580 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 105 km (229 973 mi).
2 days after its ascending node on 29 November 2032 at 16:30 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 December 2032 at 17:34 in ♈ Aries.
2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 19 November 2032 at 06:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.095°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.128° in the next southern standstill on 3 December 2032 at 17:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
