Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 14 August 2034 at 03:53.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♍ Virgo

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♍ Virgo tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1840"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1840" and ∠1895".

Sturgeon Moon after 14 days

Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2034 after 14 days on 29 August 2034 at 16:49.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 428 / 1381

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 428 of Meeus index or 1381 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 428 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 429 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠73.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.6°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 8 August 2034 at 08:24 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 August 2034 at 12:02 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 389 523 km

Moon is 389 523 km (242 038 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 240 km (251 183 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 3 August 2034 at 16:44 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 August 2034 at 16:01 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 10 August 2034 at 13:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.276°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.219° in the next southern standstill on 24 August 2034 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 29 August 2034 at 16:49 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
