Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 2 days on 15 February 2035 at 13:17.

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 ∠9° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1963"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1963" and ∠1941".

Snow Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2035 after 3 days on 22 February 2035 at 08:54.

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 434 / 1387

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 434 of Meeus index or 1387 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 434 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 435 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠255.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠255.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.6°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:31, this is 15 days after last apogee on 2 February 2035 at 12:48 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 March 2035 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 326 km

This perigee Moon is 368 326 km (228 867 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 818 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 030 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 10 February 2035 at 07:03 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 23 February 2035 at 04:20 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

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 in northern standstill

At 04:16 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.402°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in its southern standstill point on 4 March 2035 at 01:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 22 February 2035 at 08:54 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
