Moon phase and lunation details

7 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 7 days on 25 April 2034 at 11:35.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon is entering ♏ Scorpio

Moon is passing first ∠1° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 7.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1903".

Flower Moon after 1 day

Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon of May 2034 after 1 day on 3 May 2034 at 12:16.

Upcoming main Moon phases

  • Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ on 3 May 2034 at 12:16
  • Last Quarter in Aquarius ♒ on 11 May 2034 at 10:56

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 424 / 1377

The Moon is 14 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 424 of Meeus index or 1377 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 47 minutes. It is 34 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠353.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠353.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠9°.

Moon before perigee

13 days after point of perigee on 19 April 2034 at 04:07 in ♉ Taurus. 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 3 May 2034 at 06:24 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 405 208 km

The Moon is 405 208 km (251 785 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 350 km (252 494 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 30 April 2034 at 02:20 in ♎ Libra. 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 14 May 2034 at 10:17 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

2 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

9 days since the previous standstill on 22 April 2034 at 20:25 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.212°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.290° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 May 2034 at 09:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 3 May 2034 at 12:16 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
