Gibbous ♒ Aquarius
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 79% and growing larger. The 10 days young Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 27 September 2036 at 06:12.
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 ∠13° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1917".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2036 after 4 days on 5 October 2036 at 10:15.
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 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 454 of Meeus index or 1407 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 58 minutes. It is 2 hours and 26 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 2 hours and 46 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 23 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠25.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠46.7°.
Moon is at apogee at 13:16. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 18 September 2036 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next perigee on 16 October 2036 at 12:04 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 404 995 km (251 652 mi) away from Earth. It is 413 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 714 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 17:36 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 14 October 2036 at 12:21 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.
2 days since the previous standstill on 27 September 2036 at 16:26 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.031°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.162° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 October 2036 at 00:39 in ♋ Cancer.
In 4 days on 5 October 2036 at 10:15 in ♈ Aries 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.
