Crescent ♋ Cancer
Waxing Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 10% and growing larger. The 3 days young Moon is in ♊ Gemini.
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 2 days 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 leaving the last ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.8% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2035 after 11 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 3 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.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 17 minutes. It is 38 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 5 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠354.2°.
1 day after point of perigee on 9 May 2035 at 03:09 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 May 2035 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is 363 352 km (225 776 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 138 km (252 362 mi).
7 days after descending node on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 15 May 2035 at 19:31 in ♍ Virgo.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 23:59 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.691°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.782° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 25 May 2035 at 00:53.
In 11 days on 22 May 2035 at 04:26 in ♐ Sagittarius 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.
