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.
Length of current 454 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 58 minutes. It is 2 hours and 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 455 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 46 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 23 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46.7°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 13:16, this is 12 days after last perigee on 18 September 2036 at 12:38 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the 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 farther 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 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 14 October 2036 at 12:21 in ♌ Leo.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the middle to the last part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 27 September 2036 at 16:26 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.031°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.162° in the next northern standstill on 12 October 2036 at 00:39 in ♋ Cancer.
After 4 days on 5 October 2036 at 10:15 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
