Gibbous ♈ Aries
Full Moon is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 99%. The 15 days old Moon is in ♓ Pisces.
* The exact date and time of this Full Moon phase is on 29 August 2034 at 16:49 UTC.
Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise. It is visible all night and it is high in the sky around midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠18° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1912" and ∠1901".
The Full Moon this days is the Sturgeon of August 2034.
There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 428 of Meeus index or 1381 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 58 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 23 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 46 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠73.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠108.6°.
8 days after point of apogee on 21 August 2034 at 12:02 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 September 2034 at 15:31 in ♈ Aries.
The Moon is 374 863 km (232 929 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 629 km (228 434 mi).
Moon is in descending node in ♓ Pisces at 22:58 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 13 days later on 12 September 2034 at 23:47 in ♍ Virgo.
13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
5 days since the previous standstill on 24 August 2034 at 17:42 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.219°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.184° at the point of next northern standstill on 6 September 2034 at 19:37 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
