Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠22° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1836" and ∠1900".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2036.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 1 May 2036 at 08:26 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 May 2036 at 12:41 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 390 387 km (242 575 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 366 km (251 261 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 3 May 2036 at 21:32 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 May 2036 at 18:30 in ♒ Aquarius.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 30 April 2036 at 19:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.658°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.758° in the next southern standstill on 14 May 2036 at 05:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
