Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 28 August 2036 at 14:43.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠17° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2036 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 453 of Meeus index or 1406 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 42 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 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠9.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.8°.
Moon is at apogee at 00:30. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 21 August 2036 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 18 September 2036 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 405 835 km (252 174 mi) away from Earth. It is 427 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 874 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 12:59 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 17 September 2036 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 31 August 2036 at 09:33 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.884°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.957° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 September 2036 at 18:44 in ♋ Cancer.
In 2 days on 5 September 2036 at 18:45 in ♓ Pisces the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
