Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 15 April 2035 at 02:55.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1886" and ∠1911".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2035 after 4 days on 22 April 2035 at 13:21.
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 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle 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°).
7 days after point of perigee on 11 April 2035 at 01:12 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 April 2035 at 22:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 380 109 km (236 189 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 356 km (251 877 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 17:57 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces.
At 17:57 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.
4 days after previous North standstill on 13 April 2035 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.513°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.609° in the next southern standstill on 27 April 2035 at 17:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 4 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.
