Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 5 days on 22 May 2035 at 04:26.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon is entering ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1791"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1791" and ∠1894".

Flower Moon before 5 days

Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2035 after 24 days on 20 June 2035 at 19:37.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Last Quarter in Pisces ♓ on 30 May 2035 at 07:31
  • New Moon in Gemini ♊ on 6 June 2035 at 03:21

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 437 / 1390

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 24 May 2035 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 June 2035 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 400 229 km

The Moon is 400 229 km (248 691 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 357 km (222 051 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 15 May 2035 at 19:31 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 30 May 2035 at 10:00 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 25 May 2035 at 00:53 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.782°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.820° at the point of next northern standstill on 7 June 2035 at 10:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 6 June 2035 at 03:21 in ♊ Gemini 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.
