Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 24 September 2035 at 14:39.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♋ Cancer

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

True anomaly ∠46.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠46.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠75°.

Moon after perigee

Distance to Moon 364 590 km

The Moon is 364 590 km (226 546 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 12 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 310 km (251 227 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 16 September 2035 at 02:58 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 September 2035 at 03:21 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 24 September 2035 at 23:19 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.804°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.877° at the point of next southern standstill on 8 October 2035 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 1 October 2035 at 13:07 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
