Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 8 July 2036 at 11:19.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2036 after 28 days on 7 August 2036 at 02:49.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 16 July 2036 at 14:39
  • New Moon in Leo ♌ on 23 July 2036 at 10:17

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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 451 of Meeus index or 1404 from Brown series.

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

14 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 day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 July 2036 at 16:20 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 405 114 km

The Moon is 405 114 km (251 726 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 005 km (252 280 mi).

Moon before descending node

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

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

12 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 after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 7 July 2036 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.902°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.877° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 July 2036 at 00:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 23 July 2036 at 10:17 in ♌ Leo the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
