Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 7 May 2035 at 20:04.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♌ Leo

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1940"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1940" and ∠1899".

Flower Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2035 after 8 days on 22 May 2035 at 04:26.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 14 May 2035 at 10:28
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius ♐ on 22 May 2035 at 04:26
  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 30 May 2035 at 07:31
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 6 June 2035 at 03:21

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 437 / 1390

The Moon is 6 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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

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°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.4°

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°.

Moon after perigee

4 days 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 May 2035 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 369 542 km

The Moon is 369 542 km (229 623 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 138 km (252 362 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 3 May 2035 at 06:54 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 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

24 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 after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 10 May 2035 at 23:59 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.691°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.782° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 May 2035 at 00:53 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 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.
