Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2036 after 14 days on 7 August 2036 at 02:49.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 10:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 452 of Meeus index or 1405 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 18 minutes is the length of new lunation 452. It is 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 453 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:38, this is 13 days after last apogee on 10 July 2036 at 16:20 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 August 2036 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 534 km (222 161 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 974 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 822 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
12 days after its descending node on 11 July 2036 at 00:53 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 July 2036 at 11:36 in ♌ Leo.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 22 July 2036 at 00:37 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.877°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.865° in the next southern standstill on 4 August 2036 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
