Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 4 April 2036 at 00:03.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1966"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.5% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1917".

Pink Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2036 after 4 days on 10 April 2036 at 20:22.

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 448 / 1401

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 448 of Meeus index or 1401 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.53 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 36 minutes. It is 2 hours and 52 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 8 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 1 minute longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠258.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠258.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠292.8°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 09:36. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 21 March 2036 at 21:41 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 18 April 2036 at 17:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 619 km

This perigee Moon is 368 619 km (229 049 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 111 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 737 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 19:59 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 20 April 2036 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 19:59 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 3 April 2036 at 13:10 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.439°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.540° at the point of next southern standstill on 16 April 2036 at 20:29 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 10 April 2036 at 20:22 in ♎ Libra 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.
