Gibbous ♍ Virgo
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 74% and getting smaller. The 19 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 15 December 2035 at 00:33.
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 first ∠0° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.2% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1947" and ∠1950".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2036 after 24 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 444 of Meeus index or 1397 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
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°.
3 days after point of perigee on 15 December 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 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 December 2035 at 15:44 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is 368 209 km (228 794 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 575 km (252 634 mi).
Moon is in ascending node in ♌ Leo at 09:33 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 14 days later on 2 January 2036 at 18:21 in ♒ Aquarius.
At 09:33 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.
3 days since the previous standstill on 15 December 2035 at 23:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.300°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.326° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 December 2035 at 15:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
In 10 days on 29 December 2035 at 14:31 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
