Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 20 March 2034 at 10:14.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♈ Aries

Moon is passing about ∠16° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1967"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1967" and ∠1926".

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 423 / 1376

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.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠337.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠337.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠353.9°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 18:12. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 9 March 2034 at 16:05 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 6 April 2034 at 03:44 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 963 km

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 further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 20 March 2034 at 15:22 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 April 2034 at 21:12 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

14 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 13 March 2034 at 19:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.147°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.139° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 March 2034 at 12:34 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 3 April 2034 at 19:19 in ♎ Libra the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
