Moon phase on 24 January 2035 Wednesday is Full Moon, 15 days old Moon is in Leo.Share this page: twitter facebook linkedin
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1918" and ∠1949".
The Full Moon this days is the Wolf of January 2035.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through 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°).
2 days after point of perigee on 21 January 2035 at 18:05 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2035 at 12:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 373 744 km (232 234 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 000 km (251 655 mi).
10 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 January 2035 at 19:11 in ♍ Virgo.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.494°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.448° in the next southern standstill on 4 February 2035 at 16:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
