Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 18 November 2036 at 00:14.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1812" and ∠1942".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 13 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 456 of Meeus index or 1409 from Brown series.
Length of current 456 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 457 length.
Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113°. 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°).
8 days after point of perigee on 11 November 2036 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 November 2036 at 04:24 in ♒ Aquarius.
Moon is 395 477 km (245 738 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 313 km (251 228 mi).
9 days after its ascending node on 10 November 2036 at 12:58 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 November 2036 at 22:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

12 days after previous North standstill on 8 November 2036 at 06:31 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.402°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.497° in the next southern standstill on 21 November 2036 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 13 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
