Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 22 April 2035 at 13:21.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1908".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2035 after 28 days on 22 May 2035 at 04:26.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
12 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 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 April 2035 at 22:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 400 964 km (249 147 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 356 km (251 877 mi).
4 days after its ascending node on 18 April 2035 at 17:57 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces.
4 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
9 days after previous North standstill on 13 April 2035 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.513°. Next 4 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 14 days on 7 May 2035 at 20:04 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
