Crescent ♏ Scorpio
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 12 January 2034 at 13:17.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 9.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1951".
Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2034 after 20 days on 3 February 2034 at 10:05.
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.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 420 of Meeus index or 1373 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 15 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 32 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠252°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠289°.
Moon is at apogee at 00:22. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 1 January 2034 at 00:06 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 25 January 2034 at 21:19 in ♈ Aries.
This apogee Moon is 404 300 km (251 220 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 108 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 409 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
2 days after ascending node on 11 January 2034 at 04:21 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 25 January 2034 at 00:56 in ♈ Aries.
2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
9 days since the previous standstill on 3 January 2034 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.468°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.413° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 January 2034 at 23:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
In 6 days on 20 January 2034 at 10:02 in ♒ Aquarius the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
