Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 27 October 2036 at 01:14.
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 7.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1787" and ∠1933".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2036 after 3 days on 4 November 2036 at 00:44.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 455 of Meeus index or 1408 from Brown series.
Length of current 455 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 456 length.
Length of current synodic month is 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 28 October 2036 at 07:33 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 November 2036 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 401 076 km (249 217 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 165 km (230 010 mi).
3 days after its descending node on 27 October 2036 at 20:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 November 2036 at 12:58 in ♌ Leo.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2036 at 00:51 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.273°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.402° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2036 at 06:31 in ♋ Cancer.
After 3 days on 4 November 2036 at 00:44 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
