Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 30 July 2036 at 02:56.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1771" and ∠1892".

Sturgeon Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2036 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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 before apogee

12 days 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 August 2036 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 628 km

Moon is 404 628 km (251 424 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 243 km (252 428 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 24 July 2036 at 11:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2036 at 06:48 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 4 August 2036 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.865°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.867° in the next northern standstill on 18 August 2036 at 10:50 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day 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.
