Crescent ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 16 July 2036 at 14:39.
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 ∠6° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1863" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2036 after 20 days on 7 August 2036 at 02:49.
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 451 of Meeus index or 1404 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
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°.
6 days 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 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 July 2036 at 18:38 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 384 645 km (239 007 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 534 km (222 161 mi).
6 days after descending node on 11 July 2036 at 00:53 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 July 2036 at 11:36 in ♌ Leo.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
9 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 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.877° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 July 2036 at 00:37 in ♋ Cancer.
In 5 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.
