Moon* ♌ Leo
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 97% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♌ Leo.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 5 February 2036 at 07:01.
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 is passing first ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1944".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2036 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 446 of Meeus index or 1399 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2036. It is 2 hours and 45 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 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠195.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠223.9°.
Moon is at perigee at 20:55. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 26 January 2036 at 16:05 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 23 February 2036 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 358 657 km (222 859 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 851 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 699 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
11 days after descending node on 29 January 2036 at 22:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 February 2036 at 03:38 in ♌ Leo.
25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
1 day since the previous standstill on 8 February 2036 at 23:26 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.249°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.246° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 February 2036 at 04:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 11 February 2036 at 22:09 in ♌ Leo 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.
