Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♉ Taurus

Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1906"

Lunar disc appears visually 0% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1906" and ∠1906".

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 449 / 1402

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 449 of Meeus index or 1402 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.41 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 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 3 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠292.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠292.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318.9°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 18 April 2036 at 17:40 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 May 2036 at 08:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 376 103 km

The Moon is 376 103 km (233 700 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 111 km (229 355 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after descending node on 20 April 2036 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 3 May 2036 at 21:32 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 16 April 2036 at 20:29 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.540°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.658° at the point of next northern standstill on 30 April 2036 at 19:06 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 10 May 2036 at 08:09 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
