Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days 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 about ∠14° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1892".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2036 after 9 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 5 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 28 May 2036 at 09:17 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 June 2036 at 05:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 363 477 km (225 854 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 205 km (251 783 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 22:23 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 13 June 2036 at 20:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 22:23 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
2 days after previous North standstill on 28 May 2036 at 03:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.831°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.888° in the next southern standstill on 10 June 2036 at 13:44 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 9 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.
