Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 2 days on 12 January 2034 at 13:17.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1781"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1781" and ∠1951".

Snow Moon after 18 days

Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2034 after 18 days on 3 February 2034 at 10:05.

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 420 / 1373

The Moon is 24 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.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

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°).

Lunation length longer than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠252°

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 after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 13 January 2034 at 00:22 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 January 2034 at 21:19 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 402 517 km

The Moon is 402 517 km (250 112 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 926 km (229 861 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 11 January 2034 at 04:21 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 25 January 2034 at 00:56 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

11 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.413° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 January 2034 at 23:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 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.
