Moon phase and lunation details

1 day after Last Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 5 September 2034 at 11:41.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♋ Cancer later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1956"

Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1904".

Harvest Moon after 21 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2034 after 21 days on 28 September 2034 at 02:57.

Upcoming main Moon phases

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.

Lunation 428 / 1381

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 428 of Meeus index or 1381 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.51 days

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°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

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.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠73.9°

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 after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 2 September 2034 at 15:31 in ♈ Aries. 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 18 September 2034 at 07:04 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 366 386 km

The Moon is 366 386 km (227 662 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 970 km (251 637 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after descending node on 30 August 2034 at 22:58 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 12 September 2034 at 23:47 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 19:37 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠18.184°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-18.177° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 21 September 2034 at 02:17.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 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.
