Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

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 435 / 1388

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 435 of Meeus index or 1388 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 435 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer than next lunation 436 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠291.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.8°. 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

14 days after point of perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 405 364 km

Moon is 405 364 km (251 882 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 557 km (251 380 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 22 March 2035 at 12:53 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.394°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.441° in the next southern standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 8 April 2035 at 10:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
