Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.4% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2035 after 15 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 28 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.
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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:00, this is 14 days after last apogee on 20 June 2035 at 12:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 17 July 2035 at 17:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 357 717 km (222 275 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 791 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 639 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
8 days after its descending node on 26 June 2035 at 11:14 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 July 2035 at 01:03 in ♍ Virgo.
22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 22:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.843°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.832° in its southern standstill point on 18 July 2035 at 15:35 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
