Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 30 April 2035 at 16:54.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠3° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1838" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2035 after 19 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 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
5 days after point of apogee on 26 April 2035 at 22:33 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 May 2035 at 03:09 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 390 018 km (242 346 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 785 km (223 560 mi).
13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces.
13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the first to the middle part of it.
4 days after previous South standstill on 27 April 2035 at 17:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.609°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.691° in the next northern standstill on 10 May 2035 at 23:59 in ♊ Gemini.
After 5 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.
