Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 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 ∠24° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1921".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2035 after 23 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 20 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.
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 apogee on this date at 05:37, this is 15 days after last perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 11 April 2035 at 01:12 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 404 557 km (251 380 mi) away from Earth. It is 851 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 152 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
7 days after its ascending node on 22 March 2035 at 12:53 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces.
7 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
13 days after previous North standstill on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.394°. Next day 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 8 days on 8 April 2035 at 10:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
