Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 8 April 2035 at 10:58.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1943" and ∠1915".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2035 after 13 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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 436 of Meeus index or 1389 from Brown series.
Length of current 436 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 6 minutes. 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°).
10 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 day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 April 2035 at 01:12 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 368 983 km (229 275 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 449 km (226 458 mi).
3 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 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 April 2035 at 17:57 in ♍ Virgo.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
9 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.441°. Next 4 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.
After 13 days on 22 April 2035 at 13:21 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
