Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1923" and ∠1916".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2035 after 14 days on 22 April 2035 at 13:21.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 10:58 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 436 of Meeus index or 1389 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 6 minutes is the length of new lunation 436. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than next lunation 437 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠338.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 April 2035 at 01:12 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 372 817 km (231 658 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 449 km (226 458 mi).
2 days after its descending node on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 April 2035 at 17:57 in ♍ Virgo.
16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
8 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.441°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.513° in the next northern standstill on 13 April 2035 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
