Moon phase and lunation details

6 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 6 days on 12 September 2034 at 16:14.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Harvest Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2034 after 8 days on 28 September 2034 at 02:57.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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 429 / 1382

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 429 of Meeus index or 1382 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 429 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 25 minutes shorter than next lunation 430 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠108.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠108.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠141.4°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 18 September 2034 at 07:04 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 September 2034 at 04:10 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 510 km

Moon is 404 510 km (251 351 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 430 km (225 204 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 12 September 2034 at 23:47 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 27 September 2034 at 08:33 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 6 September 2034 at 19:37 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.184°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.177° in the next southern standstill on 21 September 2034 at 02:17 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 28 September 2034 at 02:57 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
