First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 55% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 25 November 2036 at 22:28 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1772" and ∠1945".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 7 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 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
1 day after point of apogee on 25 November 2036 at 04:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 December 2036 at 01:52 in ♌ Leo.
Moon is 404 558 km (251 381 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 178 km (228 154 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 23 November 2036 at 22:06 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2036 at 14:24 in ♌ Leo.
15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
5 days after previous South standstill on 21 November 2036 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.497°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.561° in the next northern standstill on 5 December 2036 at 14:26 in ♋ Cancer.
After 7 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.
