Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 26 August 2035 at 09:08.
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 first ∠2° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2035 after 18 days on 17 September 2035 at 14:23.
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 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 02:28, this is 15 days after last apogee on 14 August 2035 at 06:09 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 10 September 2035 at 23:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 365 533 km (227 132 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 025 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 823 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
10 days after its descending node on 19 August 2035 at 19:18 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 1 September 2035 at 19:14 in ♌ Leo.
25 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 28 August 2035 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.744°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.755° in the next southern standstill on 11 September 2035 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 2 days on 2 September 2035 at 01:59 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
