Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1903".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2036 after 1 day on 5 September 2036 at 18:45.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 13 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.
Length of current 453 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 454 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.8°. 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 3 September 2036 at 00:30 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 September 2036 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo.
Moon is 404 875 km (251 578 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 820 km (224 203 mi).
1 day after its descending node on 3 September 2036 at 12:59 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 September 2036 at 07:43 in ♌ Leo.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 31 August 2036 at 09:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.884°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.957° in the next northern standstill on 14 September 2036 at 18:44 in ♋ Cancer.
After 1 day on 5 September 2036 at 18:45 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
