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.

The Moon is 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 436 of Meeus index or 1389 from Brown series.

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

4 days 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 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 April 2035 at 22:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 367 896 km

The Moon is 367 896 km (228 600 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 356 km (251 877 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 April 2035 at 17:57 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

23 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 after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 13 April 2035 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.513°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.609° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 April 2035 at 17:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 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.
