Lunation 425 / 1378

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 425 of Meeus index or 1378 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.3 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 13 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2034. It is 36 minutes shorter 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 5 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 38 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.4°.

Moon before apogee

12 days after point of apogee on 30 May 2034 at 11:23 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 June 2034 at 21:42 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 366 184 km

The Moon is 366 184 km (227 536 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 644 km (224 094 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 10 June 2034 at 13:46 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, 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 3 June 2034 at 15:58 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.405°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.417° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 June 2034 at 18:29 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 16 June 2034 at 10:26 in ♊ Gemini 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.
