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 425 / 1378

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 425 of Meeus index or 1378 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 425 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2034. It is 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 426 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.4°. 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 after apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 30 May 2034 at 11:23 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 June 2034 at 21:42 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 862 km

Moon is 386 862 km (240 385 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 644 km (224 094 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 27 May 2034 at 04:57 in ♎ Libra, 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 10 June 2034 at 13:46 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 3 June 2034 at 15:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.405°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.417° in the next northern standstill on 16 June 2034 at 18:29 in ♊ Gemini.
