Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 5 days on 23 July 2034 at 07:05.
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 first ∠3° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.1% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1796" and ∠1890".
Next Full Moon is the Buck Moon of July 2034 after 2 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 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 427 of Meeus index or 1380 from Brown series.
Length of current 427 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes. 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°).
3 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 August 2034 at 08:24 in ♉ Taurus.
Moon is 399 165 km (248 030 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 503 km (229 599 mi).
8 days after its ascending node on 20 July 2034 at 09:54 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 3 August 2034 at 16:44 in ♓ Pisces.
8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
At 08:38 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.336°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.276° in its northern standstill point on 10 August 2034 at 13:32 in ♊ Gemini.
After 2 days on 31 July 2034 at 05:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
