Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 12 October 2036 at 18:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is leaving the last ∠1° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♍ Virgo later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1972"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1925".

Beaver Moon after 19 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2036 after 19 days on 4 November 2036 at 00:44.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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.

Lunation 454 / 1407

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 454 of Meeus index or 1407 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.42 days

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°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.8°

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 before apogee

14 days after point of apogee on 30 September 2036 at 13:16 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 October 2036 at 12:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 563 km

The Moon is 363 563 km (225 908 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 813 km (227 306 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 14 October 2036 at 12:21 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 October 2036 at 20:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 12 October 2036 at 00:39 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠20.162°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.273° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 October 2036 at 00:51 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 19 October 2036 at 11:50 in ♎ Libra 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.
