Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Moon is passing about ∠6° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1770" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2036 after 14 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 14:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 445 of Meeus index or 1398 from Brown series.
29 days, 19 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 445. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2035. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 446 length.
Length of current synodic month is 7 hours and 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠195.6°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
13 days after point of perigee on 15 December 2035 at 19:38 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 December 2035 at 15:44 in ♑ Capricorn.
Moon is 405 042 km (251 681 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 575 km (252 634 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 19 December 2035 at 09:33 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 January 2036 at 18:21 in ♒ Aquarius.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 15:02 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-19.326°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2035. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠19.295° in its northern standstill point on 12 January 2036 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
