Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 8 June 2036 at 21:02.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2036 after 25 days on 8 July 2036 at 11:19.
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.
The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
15 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 day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 June 2036 at 05:06 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 405 424 km (251 919 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 205 km (251 783 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 30 May 2036 at 22:23 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2036 at 20:47 in ♒ Aquarius.
12 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 10 June 2036 at 13:44 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.888°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.895° in the next northern standstill on 24 June 2036 at 13:24 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 24 June 2036 at 03:09 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
