Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠21° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Neap tide

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.

Lunation 426 / 1379

The Moon is 27 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.

Synodic month length 29.33 days

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°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.4°

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°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 366 293 km

The Moon is 366 293 km (227 604 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 334 km (251 241 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 7 July 2034 at 14:33 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2034 at 09:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.423°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠18.385° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 July 2034 at 05:13 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 15 July 2034 at 18:15 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
