Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 20 June 2035 at 19:37.
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 passing first ∠1° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1785" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2035 after 26 days on 20 July 2035 at 10:37.
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.
The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
2 days after point of apogee on 20 June 2035 at 12:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 July 2035 at 21:00 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 401 619 km (249 554 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 717 km (222 275 mi).
11 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 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 26 June 2035 at 11:14 in ♓ Pisces.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 21 June 2035 at 08:16 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.862°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.843° in the next northern standstill on 4 July 2035 at 22:29 in ♊ Gemini.
After 11 days on 5 July 2035 at 09:59 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
