Moon ♋ Cancer
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 14 days old Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 16 December 2032 at 20:49 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1859" and ∠1950".
The Full Moon this days is the Cold of December 2032.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 407 of Meeus index or 1360 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 24 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 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 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠286.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠315.8°.
7 days after point of perigee on 8 December 2032 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 December 2032 at 11:34 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 385 673 km (239 646 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 516 km (251 355 mi).
3 days after descending node on 12 December 2032 at 17:34 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 December 2032 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 16:10 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠19.141°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-19.115° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 31 December 2032 at 03:26.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
