Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 20 July 2035 at 10:37.
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 about ∠10° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1792" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2035 after 28 days on 19 August 2035 at 01:00.
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 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 439 of Meeus index or 1392 from Brown series.
Length of current 439 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 440 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.6°. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2035 at 17:31 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 2 August 2035 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer.
Moon is 400 082 km (248 599 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 719 km (224 140 mi).
12 days after its ascending node on 9 July 2035 at 01:03 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 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
12 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 18 July 2035 at 15:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.832°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.787° in the next northern standstill on 1 August 2035 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 3 August 2035 at 17:12 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
