Moon* ♑ Capricorn
Waxing Gibbous is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 98% and growing larger. The 13 days young Moon is in ♐ Sagittarius.
Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 6 days on 23 June 2034 at 14:35.
Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.
Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1789" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 1 day 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 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 426 of Meeus index or 1379 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 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 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠25.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠45.9°.
3 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 400 647 km (248 951 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 365 km (227 027 mi).
7 days after ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 July 2034 at 14:33 in ♓ Pisces.
7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
At 23:50 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.423°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.385° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 14 July 2034 at 05:13.
In 1 day on 1 July 2034 at 17:44 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
