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 is entering ♌ Leo

Lunation 440 / 1393

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 440 of Meeus index or 1393 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 440 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 441 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46.4°. 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 perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 02:28, this is 15 days after last apogee on 14 August 2035 at 06:09 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 10 September 2035 at 23:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 365 533 km

This perigee Moon is 365 533 km (227 132 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 025 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 823 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 19 August 2035 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 September 2035 at 19:14 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 28 August 2035 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.744°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.755° in the next southern standstill on 11 September 2035 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 2 September 2035 at 01:59 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
