Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 25 November 2036 at 22:28.
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.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1850" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2036 after 2 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 456 of Meeus index or 1409 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes. It is 2 hours and 40 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠76°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠113°.
6 days after point of apogee on 25 November 2036 at 04:24 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 December 2036 at 01:52 in ♌ Leo.
The Moon is 387 525 km (240 797 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 178 km (228 154 mi).
7 days after descending node on 23 November 2036 at 22:06 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 7 December 2036 at 14:24 in ♌ Leo.
20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 21 November 2036 at 10:22 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.497°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.561° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 December 2036 at 14:26 in ♋ Cancer.
In 2 days on 3 December 2036 at 14:08 in ♊ Gemini 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.
