Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 17 October 2035 at 02:35.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1961" and ∠1927".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2035 after 26 days on 15 November 2035 at 13:49.
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 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 442 of Meeus index or 1395 from Brown series.
Length of current 442 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 443 length.
Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠75°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠110.7°. 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 19:38, this is 12 days after last apogee on 8 October 2035 at 19:01 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 5 November 2035 at 15:01 in ♑ Capricorn.
This perigee Moon is 367 444 km (228 319 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 936 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 912 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
7 days after its descending node on 13 October 2035 at 10:19 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 October 2035 at 07:11 in ♍ Virgo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 8 October 2035 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.877°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.978° in the next northern standstill on 22 October 2035 at 04:59 in ♋ Cancer.
After 10 days on 31 October 2035 at 02:59 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
