Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 84% and growing larger. The 11 days young Moon is in ♍ Virgo.
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.
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°).
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.
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°.
7 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 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 April 2035 at 22:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 380 109 km (236 189 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 356 km (251 877 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 17:57 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces.
At 17:57 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
4 days 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 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.609° at the point of next southern standstill on 27 April 2035 at 17:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 4 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.
