Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 5 days on 21 December 2035 at 16:29.

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 ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2036 after 16 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16.

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 before perigee

11 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 December 2035 at 15:44 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 401 407 km

The Moon is 401 407 km (249 423 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 575 km (252 634 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 19 December 2035 at 09:33 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 2 January 2036 at 18:21 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

11 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.326° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 December 2035 at 15:02 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 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.
