Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 30 June 2036 at 18:13.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1857"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1857" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 4 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2036 after 4 days on 8 July 2036 at 11:19.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 8 July 2036 at 11:19

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 before perigee

8 days after point of perigee on 25 June 2036 at 10:31 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 July 2036 at 16:20 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 386 024 km

The Moon is 386 024 km (239 864 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 005 km (252 280 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after ascending node on 27 June 2036 at 02:46 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 July 2036 at 00:53 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

8 days 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 4 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 4 days

In 4 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.
