Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 25 November 2034 at 22:32.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠2° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1964"

Lunar disc appears visually 1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1945".

Beaver Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2034 after 27 days on 25 December 2034 at 08:54.

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 431 / 1384

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 25 November 2034 at 22:06 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 December 2034 at 10:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 877 km

Moon is 364 877 km (226 724 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 607 km (252 654 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 21 November 2034 at 00:41 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 December 2034 at 11:15 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon in northern standstill

At 19:42 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.488°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.553° in its southern standstill point on 12 December 2034 at 00:24 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 10 December 2034 at 20:14 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
