Quarter* ♒ Aquarius
Waning Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 60% and getting smaller. The 21 days old Moon is in ♒ Aquarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 6 days on 3 May 2034 at 12:16.
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 passing about ∠8° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.9% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1864" and ∠1900".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2034 after 22 days on 2 June 2034 at 03:54.
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 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
7 days after point of apogee on 3 May 2034 at 06:24 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 May 2034 at 14:28 in ♉ Taurus.
The Moon is 384 527 km (238 934 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 645 km (222 230 mi).
10 days after ascending node on 30 April 2034 at 02:20 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 May 2034 at 10:17 in ♈ Aries.
10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
3 days since the previous standstill on 7 May 2034 at 09:07 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.290°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.340° at the point of next northern standstill on 20 May 2034 at 06:51 in ♊ Gemini.
In 7 days on 18 May 2034 at 03:12 in ♉ Taurus 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.
