Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 31 January 2035 at 06:02.
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 ∠8° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1947".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2035 after 19 days on 22 February 2035 at 08:54.
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 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee on this date at 12:48, this is 11 days after last perigee on 21 January 2035 at 18:05 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 18 February 2035 at 05:31 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 405 000 km (251 655 mi) away from Earth. It is 408 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 709 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
6 days after its ascending node on 26 January 2035 at 19:11 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 February 2035 at 07:03 in ♓ Pisces.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 21 January 2035 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.494°. Next 2 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.
After 5 days on 8 February 2035 at 08:22 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
