Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days on 9 March 2035 at 23:09.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠24° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1934" and ∠1931".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2035 after 11 days on 23 March 2035 at 22:42.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 435 of Meeus index or 1388 from Brown series.
Length of current 435 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer than next lunation 436 length.
Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.8°. 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°).
10 days after point of apogee on 2 March 2035 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 370 613 km (230 288 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 413 km (229 543 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 9 March 2035 at 15:01 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2035 at 12:53 in ♍ Virgo.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 4 March 2035 at 01:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.382°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.394° in the next northern standstill on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer.
After 11 days on 23 March 2035 at 22:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
