Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 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 ∠7° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1972" and ∠1929".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2035 after 8 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 6 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 01:35, this is 12 days after last apogee on 2 March 2035 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 369 413 km (229 543 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 905 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 943 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
5 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 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2035 at 12:53 in ♍ Virgo.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 4 March 2035 at 01:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.382°. Next day 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 8 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.
