Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2035 after 21 days on 22 February 2035 at 08:54.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 433 of Meeus index or 1386 from Brown series.

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 before apogee

9 days 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2035 at 12:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 403 000 km

Moon is 403 000 km (250 413 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 000 km (251 655 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 26 January 2035 at 19:11 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 February 2035 at 07:03 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.494°. Next 4 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 7 days

After 7 days on 8 February 2035 at 08:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
