Gibbous ♓ Pisces
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 ∠20° 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 15 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 18 minutes. It is 58 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠354.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠9.3°.
1 day after point of apogee on 6 August 2036 at 19:59 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 August 2036 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 405 321 km (251 855 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 819 km (222 338 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 06:48 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 20 August 2036 at 22:29 in ♌ Leo.
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.
3 days since the previous standstill on 4 August 2036 at 03:31 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.865°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.867° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 August 2036 at 10:50 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
