Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1909"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1909" and ∠1902".

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.

Lunation 436 / 1389

The Moon is 26 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.

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 before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 26 April 2035 at 22:33 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 9 May 2035 at 03:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 495 km

The Moon is 375 495 km (233 322 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 785 km (223 560 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 May 2035 at 19:31 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

16 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 before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 27 April 2035 at 17:20 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.609°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.691° at the point of next northern standstill on 10 May 2035 at 23:59 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 7 May 2035 at 20:04 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
