Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 16 March 2035 at 20:15.
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.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1898" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2035 after 2 days on 23 March 2035 at 22:42.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
6 days after point of perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 377 678 km (234 678 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 557 km (251 380 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2035 at 12:53 in ♍ Virgo.
26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
4 days after previous North standstill on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.394°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.441° in the next southern standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 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.
