Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 3 April 2034 at 19:19.

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 is entering ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1768"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1918".

Pink Moon before 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2034 after 28 days on 3 May 2034 at 12:16.

Moderate tide

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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 423 of Meeus index or 1376 from Brown series.

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 before perigee

14 days after point of perigee on 21 March 2034 at 18:12 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 6 April 2034 at 03:44 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 405 455 km

The Moon is 405 455 km (251 938 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 054 km (252 310 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 2 April 2034 at 21:12 in ♍ Virgo. 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 17 April 2034 at 02:12 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 26 March 2034 at 12:34 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.139°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.168° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 April 2034 at 02:35 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 18 April 2034 at 19:26 in ♈ Aries 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.
