Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 4 November 2036 at 00:44.

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 ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1949"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1937".

Beaver Moon before 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 25 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 455 / 1408

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 455 of Meeus index or 1408 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 455 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 456 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76°. 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 perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 28 October 2036 at 07:33 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 November 2036 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 367 755 km

Moon is 367 755 km (228 512 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 165 km (230 010 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 27 October 2036 at 20:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 November 2036 at 12:58 in ♌ Leo.

Moon in northern standstill

At 06:31 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠20.402°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-20.497° in its southern standstill point on 21 November 2036 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 18 November 2036 at 00:14 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
