Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 7 May 2035 at 20:04.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2035 after 12 days on 22 May 2035 at 04:26.
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 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 437 of Meeus index or 1390 from Brown series.
Length of current 437 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 17 minutes. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 438 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.2°. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 03:09, this is 12 days after last apogee on 26 April 2035 at 22:33 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 May 2035 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 359 785 km (223 560 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 723 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 571 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
6 days after its descending node on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 May 2035 at 19:31 in ♍ Virgo.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 27 April 2035 at 17:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.609°. Next day 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 12 days on 22 May 2035 at 04:26 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
