Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 11 February 2036 at 22:09 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1951" and ∠1944".
The Full Moon this days is the Snow of February 2036.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°.
1 day after point of perigee on 10 February 2036 at 20:55 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 February 2036 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 367 334 km (228 251 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 790 km (252 146 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 03:38 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 26 February 2036 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 03:38 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
3 days 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 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.246° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 February 2036 at 04:47 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
