Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 8 April 2035 at 10:58.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1973"

Lunar disc appears visually 3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1914".

Pink Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2035 after 10 days on 22 April 2035 at 13:21.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Cancer ♋ on 15 April 2035 at 02:55
  • Full Moon in Libra ♎ on 22 April 2035 at 13:21
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 30 April 2035 at 16:54
  • New Moon in Taurus ♉ on 7 May 2035 at 20:04

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 436 / 1389

The Moon is 4 days 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 6 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 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 3 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠318.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠318.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠338.4°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 11 April 2035 at 01:12 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 April 2035 at 22:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 363 311 km

The Moon is 363 311 km (225 751 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 356 km (251 877 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after descending node on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 April 2035 at 17:57 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.441°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠18.513° at the point of next northern standstill on 13 April 2035 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 22 April 2035 at 13:21 in ♎ Libra 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.
