First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 56% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 10 August 2035 at 21:52 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1788" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2035 after 7 days on 19 August 2035 at 01:00.
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 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 440 of Meeus index or 1393 from Brown series.
Length of current 440 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 441 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46.4°. 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°).
9 days after point of perigee on 2 August 2035 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 August 2035 at 06:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 400 956 km (249 143 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 130 km (251 736 mi).
6 days after its ascending node on 5 August 2035 at 09:20 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 August 2035 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius.
6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
10 days after previous North standstill on 1 August 2035 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.787°. Next 3 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 7 days on 19 August 2035 at 01:00 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
