Moon is passing about ∠20° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc is not visible from Earth. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1920" and ∠1888".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 15 days on 31 July 2034 at 05:54.
There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
At 18:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 427 of Meeus index or 1380 from Brown series.
29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes is the length of new lunation 427. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 428 length.
Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.9°. 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 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini. 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 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio.

7 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2034 at 09:54 in ♍ Virgo.

1 day after previous North standstill on 14 July 2034 at 05:13 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.385°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.336° in the next southern standstill on 28 July 2034 at 08:38 in ♑ Capricorn.
The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
