Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 29 December 2035 at 14:31.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1786" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2036 after 10 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16.
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.
The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 445 of Meeus index or 1398 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 46 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2036. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 7 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 minute shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠195.6°.
2 days after point of apogee on 30 December 2035 at 15:44 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 January 2036 at 08:47 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 401 362 km (249 395 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 519 km (221 531 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 18:21 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 15 January 2036 at 16:39 in ♌ Leo.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 29 December 2035 at 15:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.326°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.295° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 January 2036 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer.
In 10 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
