Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2036 after 10 days on 11 February 2036 at 22:09.

Synodic month length 29.78 days

Length of current 446 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2036. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 447 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠195.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠195.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠223.9°. 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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 26 January 2036 at 16:05 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 February 2036 at 20:55 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 392 444 km

Moon is 392 444 km (243 853 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 657 km (222 859 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 29 January 2036 at 22:45 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 February 2036 at 03:38 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2036 at 21:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.277°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.249° in the next northern standstill on 8 February 2036 at 23:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 11 February 2036 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
