Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 5 March 2036 at 16:49.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2036 after 3 days on 12 March 2036 at 09:09.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 447 of Meeus index or 1400 from Brown series.
Length of current 447 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 57 minutes. It is 3 hours and 21 minutes longer than next lunation 448 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠223.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
14 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2036 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2036 at 02:38 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 363 297 km (225 742 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 380 km (225 794 mi).
11 days after its descending node on 26 February 2036 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 March 2036 at 13:58 in ♌ Leo.
25 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 7 March 2036 at 07:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.281°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.336° in the next southern standstill on 20 March 2036 at 12:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 3 days on 12 March 2036 at 09:09 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
