Crescent ♈ Aries
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 42% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 9 June 2034 at 19:44 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1941" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 21 days on 1 July 2034 at 17:44.
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.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 425 of Meeus index or 1378 from Brown series.
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.
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.
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°).
11 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 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 June 2034 at 21:42 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 369 192 km (229 405 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 644 km (224 094 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 13:46 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
6 days after previous South standstill on 3 June 2034 at 15:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.405°. Next 6 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.
After 5 days on 16 June 2034 at 10:26 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
