Gibbous ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 97% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♑ Capricorn.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 12 July 2035 at 07:33.
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 ∠4° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 6.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2035 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 439 of Meeus index or 1392 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠9.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.6°.
1 day after point of apogee on 17 July 2035 at 17:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 August 2035 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is 405 410 km (251 910 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 14 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 719 km (224 140 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 9 July 2035 at 01:03 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 15:35 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.832°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.787° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 1 August 2035 at 09:14.
In 1 day on 20 July 2035 at 10:37 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
