Crescent ♉ Taurus
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 46% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 28 July 2035 at 02:55 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠10° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1936" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2035 after 21 days on 19 August 2035 at 01:00.
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 439 of Meeus index or 1392 from Brown series.
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.
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.
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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2035 at 17:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 August 2035 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 370 204 km (230 034 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 719 km (224 140 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 August 2035 at 09:20 in ♍ Virgo.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 18 July 2035 at 15:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.832°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.787° in the next northern standstill on 1 August 2035 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 3 August 2035 at 17:12 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
