Crescent ♊ Gemini
Waning Crescent is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 5% and getting smaller. The 27 days old Moon is in ♉ Taurus.
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.
Moon is leaving the last ∠4° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♊ Gemini later.
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.
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°).
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.
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 is at perigee at 21:42. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 30 May 2034 at 11:23 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until 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 further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after descending node on 10 June 2034 at 13:46 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo.
18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
10 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 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.417° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 June 2034 at 18:29 in ♊ Gemini.
In 1 day 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.
