Crescent ♉ Taurus
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 21% and getting smaller. The 25 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 28 June 2035 at 18:43.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠14° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2035 after 18 days on 20 July 2035 at 10:37.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 438 of Meeus index or 1391 from Brown series.
The length of the 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 the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).
The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠354.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠9.1°.
10 days after point of apogee on 20 June 2035 at 12:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 July 2035 at 21:00 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 368 328 km (228 868 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 717 km (222 275 mi).
5 days after descending node on 26 June 2035 at 11:14 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 9 July 2035 at 01:03 in ♍ Virgo.
19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 days since the previous standstill on 21 June 2035 at 08:16 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.862°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.843° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 July 2035 at 22:29 in ♊ Gemini.
In 3 days on 5 July 2035 at 09:59 in ♋ Cancer 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.
