Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 11 February 2034 at 11:09.

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 is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1816"

Worm Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2034 after 18 days on 5 March 2034 at 02:10.

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 421 / 1374

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 421 of Meeus index or 1374 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.55 days

Length of current 421 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes longer than next lunation 422 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 25 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 38 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠289°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠289°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠317.3°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 9 February 2034 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 February 2034 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 394 631 km

Moon is 394 631 km (245 212 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 926 km (226 755 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 7 February 2034 at 08:04 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 February 2034 at 05:47 in ♈ Aries.

Moon in southern standstill

At 10:08 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.256°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.195° in its northern standstill point on 27 February 2034 at 06:42 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 18 February 2034 at 23:10 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
