Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1973" and ∠1910".

Flower Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2034 after 14 days on 3 May 2034 at 12:16.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • First Quarter in Leo ♌ on 25 April 2034 at 11:35
  • Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ on 3 May 2034 at 12:16

Moderate tide

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.

Lunation 424 / 1377

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 424 of Meeus index or 1377 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 424 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 47 minutes. It is 34 minutes longer than next lunation 425 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 12 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠353.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠353.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 04:07, this is 13 days after last apogee on 6 April 2034 at 03:44 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 3 May 2034 at 06:24 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 338 km

This perigee Moon is 357 338 km (222 040 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 170 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 018 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 17 April 2034 at 02:12 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 April 2034 at 02:20 in ♎ Libra.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 10 April 2034 at 02:35 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.168°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.212° in the next northern standstill on 22 April 2034 at 20:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 3 May 2034 at 12:16 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
