Gibbous ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 16 December 2032 at 20:49.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1816" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2033 after 28 days on 15 January 2033 at 13:07.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
9 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 December 2032 at 11:34 in ♍ Virgo.
The Moon is 394 718 km (245 266 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 516 km (251 355 mi).
5 days after descending node on 12 December 2032 at 17:34 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 December 2032 at 21:36 in ♎ Libra.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 16 December 2032 at 16:10 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.141°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.115° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 December 2032 at 03:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 13 days on 1 January 2033 at 10:17 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
