Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 4 days on 9 June 2034 at 19:44.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 17 days on 1 July 2034 at 17:44.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 27 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.
Length of current 425 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 next lunation 426 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:42, this is 15 days after last apogee on 30 May 2034 at 11:23 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 360 644 km (224 094 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 864 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 712 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its descending node on 10 June 2034 at 13:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 3 June 2034 at 15:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.405°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.417° in the next northern standstill on 16 June 2034 at 18:29 in ♊ Gemini.
After 1 day on 16 June 2034 at 10:26 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
