Gibbous ♓ Pisces
First Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 62% and growing larger. The 8 days young Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this First Quarter phase is on 8 November 2035 at 05:50 UTC.
Moon rises at noon and sets at midnight. It is visible high in the southern sky in early evening.
Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1803" and ∠1937".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2035 after 6 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 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 443 of Meeus index or 1396 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 14 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 8 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠110.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠144.1°.
3 days after point of apogee on 5 November 2035 at 15:01 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 November 2035 at 11:30 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 397 527 km (247 012 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 943 km (224 901 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♒ Aquarius at 14:55 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 22 November 2035 at 07:40 in ♍ Virgo.
14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
4 days since the previous standstill on 4 November 2035 at 23:10 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.089°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.182° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 November 2035 at 12:52 in ♋ Cancer.
In 6 days on 15 November 2035 at 13:49 in ♉ Taurus 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.
