Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 12 June 2035 at 19:50.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1776" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2035 after 2 days on 20 June 2035 at 19:37.
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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 438 of Meeus index or 1391 from Brown series.
Length of current 438 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 39 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2035. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 439 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
12 days after point of perigee on 6 June 2035 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 June 2035 at 12:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 403 485 km (250 714 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 401 km (252 526 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 11 June 2035 at 20:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 June 2035 at 11:14 in ♓ Pisces.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 7 June 2035 at 10:40 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.820°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.862° in the next southern standstill on 21 June 2035 at 08:16 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 20 June 2035 at 19:37 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
