Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 26 April 2036 at 09:33.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2036 after 9 days on 10 May 2036 at 08:09.
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.
The Moon is 4 days 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.
Length of current 449 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes. 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°).
11 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 May 2036 at 08:26 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 365 517 km (227 122 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 111 km (229 355 mi).
9 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 May 2036 at 21:32 in ♌ Leo.
23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 19:06 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.658°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.758° in its southern standstill point on 14 May 2036 at 05:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 days on 10 May 2036 at 08:09 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
