Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 1 July 2034 at 17:44.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠2° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1843" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 27 days on 31 July 2034 at 05:54.
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 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
6 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini.
Moon is 388 988 km (241 706 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 365 km (227 027 mi).
10 days after its ascending node on 23 June 2034 at 06:36 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 July 2034 at 14:33 in ♓ Pisces.
10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
2 days after previous South standstill on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.423°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.385° in the next northern standstill on 14 July 2034 at 05:13 in ♋ Cancer.
After 12 days on 15 July 2034 at 18:15 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
