Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 1 October 2035 at 13:07.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠5° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1921".

Hunter Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2035 after 8 days on 17 October 2035 at 02:35.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 442 / 1395

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 442 of Meeus index or 1395 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.58 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 47 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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠75°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠75°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠110.7°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 19:01. It is 13 days after previous perigee on 25 September 2035 at 13:37 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 20 October 2035 at 19:38 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 404 310 km

This apogee Moon is 404 310 km (251 227 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2035. It is 1 098 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 259 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 29 September 2035 at 03:21 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 October 2035 at 10:19 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 14:46 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.877°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.978° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 22 October 2035 at 04:59.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 17 October 2035 at 02:35 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
