Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 7 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 in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1845"

Lunar disc appears visually 5.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1845" and ∠1941".

Beaver Moon after 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2034 after 7 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 7 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

6 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 7 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 388 452 km

Moon is 388 452 km (241 373 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 448 km (221 487 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 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 2 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

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

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 14 November 2034 at 17:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.431°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.488° in the next northern standstill on 27 November 2034 at 19:42 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 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.
