Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 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 about ∠17° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1946" and ∠1901".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2035 after 17 days on 17 September 2035 at 14:23.
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 27 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 30 August 2035 at 02:28 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 September 2035 at 23:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 368 375 km (228 898 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 365 km (251 261 mi).
11 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 September 2035 at 19:14 in ♌ Leo.

2 days after previous North standstill on 28 August 2035 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.744°. Next 10 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 1 day 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.
