Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Lunar disc appears visually 9.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon of January 2036 after 13 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 445 of Meeus index or 1398 from Brown series.
Length of current 445 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 46 minutes. 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°).
Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 15:44, this is 14 days after last perigee on 15 December 2035 at 19:38 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 13 January 2036 at 08:47 in ♋ Cancer.
This apogee Moon is 406 575 km (252 634 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2035. It is 1 167 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 134 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
11 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 January 2036 at 18:21 in ♒ Aquarius.
11 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
1 day after previous South standstill on 29 December 2035 at 15:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.326°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.295° in the next northern standstill on 12 January 2036 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 13 January 2036 at 11:16 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
