Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days 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 ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠23° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1770"

Lunar disc appears visually 6.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon before 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2036 after 26 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
  • First Quarter in Scorpio ♏ on 30 July 2036 at 02:56
  • Full Moon in Aquarius ♒ on 7 August 2036 at 02:49

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 17 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.

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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 10 July 2036 at 16:20 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 July 2036 at 18:38 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 944 km

The Moon is 404 944 km (251 621 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 534 km (222 161 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 00:53 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 24 July 2036 at 11:36 in ♌ Leo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 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 southern standstill

3 days 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 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.877° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 July 2036 at 00:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 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.
