Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 17 June 2036 at 01:03.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1831" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2036 after 19 days on 8 July 2036 at 11:19.
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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 13 June 2036 at 05:06 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2036 at 10:31 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 391 373 km (243 188 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 947 km (223 661 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 13 June 2036 at 20:47 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2036 at 02:46 in ♌ Leo.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 10 June 2036 at 13:44 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.888°. Next 6 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 5 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.
