Gibbous ♏ Scorpio
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 100%. The 14 days old Moon is in ♏ Scorpio.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 3 May 2034 at 12:16 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠13° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1903".
The Full Moon this days is the Flower of May 2034.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 424 of Meeus index or 1377 from Brown series.
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°).
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.
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 is at apogee at 06:24. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 19 April 2034 at 04:07 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 17 May 2034 at 14:28 in ♉ Taurus.
This apogee Moon is 406 350 km (252 494 mi) away from Earth. It is 942 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 359 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 30 April 2034 at 02:20 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 14 May 2034 at 10:17 in ♈ Aries.
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.
10 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 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.290° at the point of next southern standstill on 7 May 2034 at 09:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
