Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 31 January 2035 at 06:02.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2035 after 18 days on 22 February 2035 at 08:54.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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.

Lunation 433 / 1386

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 2 February 2035 at 12:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 February 2035 at 05:31 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 231 km

Moon is 405 231 km (251 799 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 326 km (228 867 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 February 2035 at 07:03 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

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

After 4 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.
