Gibbous ♓ Pisces
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 62% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 8 November 2035 at 05:50 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2035 after 6 days on 15 November 2035 at 13:49.
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 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 443 of Meeus index or 1396 from Brown series.
Length of current 443 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 444 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠110.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠144.1°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 5 November 2035 at 15:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 November 2035 at 11:30 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 397 527 km (247 012 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 943 km (224 901 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 14:55 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 22 November 2035 at 07:40 in ♍ Virgo.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 4 November 2035 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.089°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.182° in the next northern standstill on 18 November 2035 at 12:52 in ♋ Cancer.
After 6 days on 15 November 2035 at 13:49 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
