Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 7 days on 3 February 2034 at 10:05.

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 ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 9.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1944".

Snow Moon before 7 days

Next Full Moon is the Worm Moon of March 2034 after 22 days on 5 March 2034 at 02:10.

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 421 / 1374

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 421 of Meeus index or 1374 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.55 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 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 25 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 38 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠289°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠289°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠317.3°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 9 February 2034 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 February 2034 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 405 177 km

The Moon is 405 177 km (251 765 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 926 km (226 755 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 7 February 2034 at 08:04 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 February 2034 at 05:47 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

3 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

10 days since the previous standstill on 31 January 2034 at 00:32 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.344°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.256° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 February 2034 at 10:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 18 February 2034 at 23:10 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.
