Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2032 after 13 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°).
7 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 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 December 2032 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius.

3 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 December 2032 at 17:34 in ♈ Aries.
3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 17:02 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-19.128°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠19.141° in its northern standstill point on 16 December 2032 at 16:10 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
