Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 16 March 2035 at 20:15.

Moonrise and moonset

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 in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1874"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1874" and ∠1925".

Worm Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2035 after 1 day on 23 March 2035 at 22:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Virgo ♍ on 23 March 2035 at 22:42
  • Last Quarter in Capricorn ♑ on 31 March 2035 at 23:06
  • New Moon in Aries ♈ on 8 April 2035 at 10:58
  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 15 April 2035 at 02:55

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 435 / 1388

The Moon is 13 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠291.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠291.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318.8°.

Moon after perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 382 396 km

The Moon is 382 396 km (237 610 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 557 km (251 380 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 12:53 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 12:53 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.394°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.441° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 23 March 2035 at 22:42 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
