Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 16 June 2034 at 10:26.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠11° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.1% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1929" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 14 days on 1 July 2034 at 17:44.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 426 of Meeus index or 1379 from Brown series.
Length of current 426 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. 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°).
2 days 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 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 371 534 km (230 861 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 126 km (251 734 mi).
6 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 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo.
21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
1 day after previous North standstill on 16 June 2034 at 18:29 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.417°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.423° in the next southern standstill on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 14 days on 1 July 2034 at 17:44 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
