Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 17 January 2035 at 04:45.
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.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2035 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 433 of Meeus index or 1386 from Brown series.
Length of current 433 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 32 minutes longer than next lunation 434 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠220.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠255.7°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:05, this is 15 days after last apogee on 5 January 2035 at 18:52 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2035 at 12:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 362 707 km (225 376 mi) away from Earth. It is 199 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 7 649 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its descending node on 14 January 2035 at 03:01 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 January 2035 at 19:11 in ♍ Virgo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 19:52 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.494°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.448° in its southern standstill point on 4 February 2035 at 16:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 2 days on 23 January 2035 at 20:16 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
