Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 9 October 2035 at 09:49.

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 is entering ♈ Aries

Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 442 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 443 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠75°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠75°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.7°. 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 before perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 8 October 2035 at 19:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 October 2035 at 19:38 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 385 874 km

Moon is 385 874 km (239 771 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 444 km (228 319 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 13 October 2035 at 10:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 October 2035 at 07:11 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 8 October 2035 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.877°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.978° in the next northern standstill on 22 October 2035 at 04:59 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 17 October 2035 at 02:35 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
