Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 28 July 2035 at 02:55.
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 ∠23° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1966" and ∠1891".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2035 after 16 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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 04:06, this is 15 days after last apogee on 17 July 2035 at 17:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 14 August 2035 at 06:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 360 719 km (224 140 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 789 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 637 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
9 days after its descending node on 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 August 2035 at 09:20 in ♍ Virgo.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 1 August 2035 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.787°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.761° in the next southern standstill on 14 August 2035 at 22:59 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 1 day 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.
