Crescent ♋ Cancer
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 3 days on 7 August 2034 at 06:50.
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 first ∠1° of ♋ Cancer tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.9% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1949" and ∠1893".
Next Full Moon is the Sturgeon Moon of August 2034 after 19 days on 29 August 2034 at 16:49.
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 427 of Meeus index or 1380 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠45.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠73.9°.
2 days after point of perigee on 8 August 2034 at 08:24 in ♉ Taurus. 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 21 August 2034 at 12:02 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 367 690 km (228 472 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 240 km (251 183 mi).
6 days after descending node on 3 August 2034 at 16:44 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 16 August 2034 at 16:01 in ♍ Virgo.
21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
At 13:32 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.276°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.219° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 24 August 2034 at 17:42.
In 3 days on 14 August 2034 at 03:53 in ♌ Leo 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.
