Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 9 July 2034 at 01:59.
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 passing about ∠6° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 4.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1968" and ∠1887".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 18 days on 31 July 2034 at 05:54.
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 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:35, this is 15 days after last apogee on 27 June 2034 at 00:19 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 365 365 km (227 027 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 857 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 991 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
4 days after its descending node on 7 July 2034 at 14:33 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2034 at 09:54 in ♍ Virgo.
19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
11 days after previous South standstill on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.423°. Next day 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 3 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.
