Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 29 November 2035 at 19:38.

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 ∠21° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.6% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1947".

Cold Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2035 after 11 days on 15 December 2035 at 00:33.

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 444 / 1397

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 444 of Meeus index or 1397 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.79 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 53 minutes. It is 53 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 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠144.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠144.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠171°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 08:09. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 17 November 2035 at 11:30 in ♊ Gemini. 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 15 December 2035 at 19:38 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 406 041 km

This apogee Moon is 406 041 km (252 302 mi) away from Earth. It is 633 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 668 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 22 November 2035 at 07:40 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 December 2035 at 16:36 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

11 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 after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 2 December 2035 at 07:25 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.270°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.300° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 December 2035 at 23:54 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 15 December 2035 at 00:33 in ♋ Cancer 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.
