Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 17 January 2035 at 04:45.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♋ Cancer

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1955"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1955" and ∠1950".

Wolf Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2035 after 1 day on 23 January 2035 at 20:16.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 433 / 1386

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 433 of Meeus index or 1386 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.72 days

Length of current 433 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 434 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠220.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠220.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 21 January 2035 at 18:05 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2035 at 12:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 366 561 km

Moon is 366 561 km (227 770 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 000 km (251 655 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 14 January 2035 at 03:01 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 January 2035 at 19:11 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.494°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.448° in the next southern standstill on 4 February 2035 at 16:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 23 January 2035 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
