Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1882" and ∠1906".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2036 after 13 days on 10 May 2036 at 08:09.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 09:33 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 449 of Meeus index or 1402 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes is the length of new lunation 449. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes longer than next lunation 450 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠292.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.9°. 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°).
7 days after point of apogee on 18 April 2036 at 17:40 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 May 2036 at 08:26 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 380 798 km (236 617 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 111 km (229 355 mi).
5 days after its descending node on 20 April 2036 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 May 2036 at 21:32 in ♌ Leo.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 16 April 2036 at 20:29 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.540°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.658° in the next northern standstill on 30 April 2036 at 19:06 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
