Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 23 July 2034 at 07:05.

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 ∠21° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1783"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1783" and ∠1890".

Buck Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 3 days on 31 July 2034 at 05:54.

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 427 / 1380

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 427 of Meeus index or 1380 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 427 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 428 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠45.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.9°. 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

2 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 August 2034 at 08:24 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 402 101 km

Moon is 402 101 km (249 854 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 503 km (229 599 mi).

Moon after ascending node

7 days after its ascending node on 20 July 2034 at 09:54 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 3 August 2034 at 16:44 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 before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 14 July 2034 at 05:13 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.385°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.336° in the next southern standstill on 28 July 2034 at 08:38 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 31 July 2034 at 05:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
