Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1892".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2036.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 452 of Meeus index or 1405 from Brown series.
Length of current 452 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 18 minutes. 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 apogee on this date at 19:59, this is 14 days after last perigee on 23 July 2036 at 18:38 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 21 August 2036 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.
This apogee Moon is 406 243 km (252 428 mi) away from Earth. It is 835 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 466 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
13 days after its ascending node on 24 July 2036 at 11:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2036 at 06:48 in ♒ Aquarius.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 4 August 2036 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.865°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.867° in the next northern standstill on 18 August 2036 at 10:50 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
