Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".

Buck Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2035 after 2 days on 20 July 2035 at 10:37.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 20 July 2035 at 10:37
  • Last Quarter in Taurus ♉ on 28 July 2035 at 02:55

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 439 / 1392

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 439 of Meeus index or 1392 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 439 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 440 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 17:31, this is 12 days after last perigee on 4 July 2035 at 21:00 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 2 August 2035 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 406 005 km

This apogee Moon is 406 005 km (252 280 mi) away from Earth. It is 597 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 704 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 9 July 2035 at 01:03 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 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

8 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 4 July 2035 at 22:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.843°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.832° in the next southern standstill on 18 July 2035 at 15:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 20 July 2035 at 10:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
