Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 93% and getting smaller. The 17 days old Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 23 March 2035 at 22:42.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1794" and ∠1923".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2035 after 27 days on 22 April 2035 at 13:21.
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 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 435 of Meeus index or 1388 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
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°.
11 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 399 553 km (248 271 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 557 km (251 380 mi).
3 days after ascending node on 22 March 2035 at 12:53 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 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 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.441° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 12 days on 8 April 2035 at 10:58 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
