Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 11 November 2034 at 01:16.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon is entering ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1779"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1779" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2034 after 11 days on 25 November 2034 at 22:32.

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 431 / 1384

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 431 of Meeus index or 1384 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.79 days

Length of current 431 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2034. It is 9 minutes longer than next lunation 432 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠168.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 12 November 2034 at 09:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 25 November 2034 at 22:06 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 957 km

Moon is 402 957 km (250 386 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 448 km (221 487 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 6 November 2034 at 10:15 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 November 2034 at 00:41 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

8 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 17:11 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.431°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.488° in its northern standstill point on 27 November 2034 at 19:42 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 25 November 2034 at 22:32 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
