Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 25 May 2036 at 19:17.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2036 after 12 days on 8 June 2036 at 21:02.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 450 of Meeus index or 1403 from Brown series.
Length of current 450 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 53 minutes. It is 46 minutes longer than next lunation 451 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠338.2°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 16 May 2036 at 12:41 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 28 May 2036 at 09:17 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 366 807 km (227 923 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 390 km (226 421 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 17 May 2036 at 18:30 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 30 May 2036 at 22:23 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.
13 days after previous South standstill on 14 May 2036 at 05:17 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.758°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.831° in the next northern standstill on 28 May 2036 at 03:06 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 8 June 2036 at 21:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
