Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1957"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1957" and ∠1951".

Wolf Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2036 after 27 days on 11 February 2036 at 22:09.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 445 / 1398

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 445 of Meeus index or 1398 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.82 days

Length of current 445 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2036. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 446 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 7 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠171°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠195.6°. 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°).

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 13 January 2036 at 08:47 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 January 2036 at 16:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 366 351 km

Moon is 366 351 km (227 640 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 498 km (252 586 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 16:39 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 12 January 2036 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.295°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.277° in the next southern standstill on 25 January 2036 at 21:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 28 January 2036 at 10:17 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
