Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 24 June 2036 at 03:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1970"

Lunar disc appears visually 4.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1970" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 12 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2036 after 12 days on 8 July 2036 at 11:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Libra ♎ on 30 June 2036 at 18:13
  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 8 July 2036 at 11:19
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 16 July 2036 at 14:39

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 451 / 1404

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 451 of Meeus index or 1404 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2036. It is 11 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 32 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠338.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠354.1°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 10:31. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 13 June 2036 at 05:06 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 10 July 2036 at 16:20 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 947 km

This perigee Moon is 359 947 km (223 661 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 561 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 409 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 13 June 2036 at 20:47 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 27 June 2036 at 02:46 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 24 June 2036 at 13:24 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.895°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.902° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 July 2036 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

In 12 days on 8 July 2036 at 11:19 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
