Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1789" and ∠1887".

Buck Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 1 day on 1 July 2034 at 17:44.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Capricorn ♑ on 1 July 2034 at 17:44
  • Last Quarter in Aries ♈ on 9 July 2034 at 01:59

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 426 / 1379

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 426 of Meeus index or 1379 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.33 days

Length of current 426 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 427 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.9°. 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 647 km

Moon is 400 647 km (248 951 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 365 km (227 027 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 July 2034 at 14:33 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

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

Moon in southern standstill

At 23:50 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.423°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.385° in its northern standstill point on 14 July 2034 at 05:13 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 1 July 2034 at 17:44 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
