Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 6 days on 20 January 2036 at 06:46.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2036 after 16 days on 11 February 2036 at 22:09.
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.
The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
Moon is at apogee at 16:05. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 13 January 2036 at 08:47 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 10 February 2036 at 20:55 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 498 km (252 586 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2036. It is 1 090 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 211 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
10 days after ascending node on 15 January 2036 at 16:39 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 January 2036 at 22:45 in ♒ Aquarius.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 25 January 2036 at 21:59 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.277°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.249° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 February 2036 at 23:26 in ♋ Cancer.
In 1 day on 28 January 2036 at 10:17 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
