Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 20 March 2034 at 10:14.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1926".
Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon of April 2034 after 13 days on 3 April 2034 at 19:19.
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.
The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 423 of Meeus index or 1376 from Brown series.
Length of current 423 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than next lunation 424 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠337.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠353.9°. 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 is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:12, this is 12 days after last apogee on 9 March 2034 at 16:05 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 April 2034 at 03:44 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 359 963 km (223 671 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 545 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 10 393 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
1 day after its descending node on 20 March 2034 at 15:22 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 April 2034 at 21:12 in ♍ Virgo.
14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
7 days after previous South standstill on 13 March 2034 at 19:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.147°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.139° in the next northern standstill on 26 March 2034 at 12:34 in ♊ Gemini.
After 13 days on 3 April 2034 at 19:19 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
