Synodic month length 29.78 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠195.6°

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 before perigee

11 days 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 23 February 2036 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 405 009 km

The Moon is 405 009 km (251 661 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 790 km (252 146 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after ascending node on 12 February 2036 at 03:38 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 26 February 2036 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon at southern standstill

At 04:47 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.246°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2036. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.281° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 7 March 2036 at 07:25.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 27 February 2036 at 04:59 in ♓ Pisces 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.
