Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 15 August 2036 at 01:36.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1896".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2036 after 19 days on 5 September 2036 at 18:45.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°.
10 days 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 August 2036 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 369 304 km (229 475 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 819 km (222 338 mi).
10 days after descending node on 7 August 2036 at 06:48 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 August 2036 at 22:29 in ♌ Leo.
24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
13 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 day to face maximum declination of ∠19.867° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 August 2036 at 10:50 in ♋ Cancer.
In 4 days on 21 August 2036 at 17:35 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.
