Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Cold Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 10 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 456 / 1409

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 456 of Meeus index or 1409 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 456 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 457 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113°. 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

11 days after point of perigee on 11 November 2036 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo. 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 25 November 2036 at 04:24 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 404 189 km

Moon is 404 189 km (251 151 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 313 km (251 228 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 21 November 2036 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.497°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.561° in the next northern standstill on 5 December 2036 at 14:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
