Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 23 October 2035 at 20:57.

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 ♍ Virgo

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 after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 20 October 2035 at 19:38 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 November 2035 at 15:01 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 376 193 km

The Moon is 376 193 km (233 755 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 052 km (251 688 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 26 October 2035 at 07:11 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 9 November 2035 at 14:55 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 22 October 2035 at 04:59 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.978°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.089° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 November 2035 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 31 October 2035 at 02:59 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
