Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 7 days on 19 October 2036 at 11:50.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♒ Aquarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1776"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1931".

Beaver Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2036 after 8 days on 4 November 2036 at 00:44.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 455 / 1408

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 455 of Meeus index or 1408 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.52 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 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 20 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 49 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠46.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠76°.

Moon before perigee

9 days after point of perigee on 16 October 2036 at 12:04 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 October 2036 at 07:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 556 km

The Moon is 403 556 km (250 758 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 295 km (251 217 mi).

Moon before descending node

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

Draconic month

11 days 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 southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 25 October 2036 at 00:51 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.273°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.402° at the point of next northern standstill on 8 November 2036 at 06:31 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 4 November 2036 at 00:44 in ♉ Taurus 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.
