Moon rises at sunrise and sets at sunset. It's part facing the Earth is completely in shadow.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1948" and ∠1889".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 15 days on 1 July 2034 at 17:44.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 10:26 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 426 of Meeus index or 1379 from Brown series.
29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes is the length of new lunation 426. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 427 length.
Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.9°. 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°).
1 day after point of perigee on 14 June 2034 at 21:42 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 367 915 km (228 612 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 126 km (251 734 mi).
5 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 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 18:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.417°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.423° in its southern standstill point on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
