Gibbous ♉ Taurus
Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 3 days on 29 August 2034 at 16:49.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing first ∠0° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 3.2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1964" and ∠1902".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2034 after 25 days on 28 September 2034 at 02:57.
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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°.
Moon is at perigee at 15:31. It is 12 days after previous apogee on 21 August 2034 at 12:02 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next apogee on 18 September 2034 at 07:04 in ♏ Scorpio.
This perigee Moon is 367 629 km (228 434 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 121 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 2 727 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.
2 days after descending node on 30 August 2034 at 22:58 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2034 at 23:47 in ♍ Virgo.
16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.
8 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 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.184° at the point of next northern standstill on 6 September 2034 at 19:37 in ♊ Gemini.
In 10 days on 12 September 2034 at 16:14 in ♍ Virgo 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.
