Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 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.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1960" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2036 after 1 day 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 12 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 57 minutes. It is 3 hours and 21 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 3 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠223.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠258.5°.
Moon is at perigee at 02:38. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 23 February 2036 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 21 March 2036 at 21:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 363 380 km (225 794 mi) away from Earth. It is 872 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 976 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 13:58 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 24 March 2036 at 11:54 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 13:58 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
3 days since the previous standstill on 7 March 2036 at 07:25 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.281°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.336° at the point of next southern standstill on 20 March 2036 at 12:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 1 day on 12 March 2036 at 09:09 in ♍ Virgo 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.
