Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 23 July 2036 at 10:17.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1889".

Sturgeon Moon after 13 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2036 after 13 days on 7 August 2036 at 02:49.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 452 / 1405

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 452 of Meeus index or 1405 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 452 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 18 minutes. It is 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 453 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠354.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 23 July 2036 at 18:38 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 August 2036 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 407 km

Moon is 363 407 km (225 811 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 243 km (252 428 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 11:36 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 7 August 2036 at 06:48 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 11:36 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 22 July 2036 at 00:37 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.877°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.865° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2036 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 7 August 2036 at 02:49 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
