Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 7 days on 1 January 2035 at 10:01.
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 passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2035 after 15 days on 23 January 2035 at 20:16.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 432 of Meeus index or 1385 from Brown series.
Length of current 432 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 minutes longer than next lunation 433 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠192.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠220.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
2 days after point of apogee on 5 January 2035 at 18:52 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 January 2035 at 18:05 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 402 946 km (250 379 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 707 km (225 376 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 30 December 2034 at 13:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 January 2035 at 03:01 in ♓ Pisces.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 08:12 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.547°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.494° in its northern standstill point on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 9 January 2035 at 15:03 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
