Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 5 September 2034 at 11:41.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Lunar disc appears visually 2.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1956" and ∠1904".
Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2034 after 21 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 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.
Length of current 428 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter than next lunation 429 length.
Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.6°. 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 perigee on 2 September 2034 at 15:31 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 September 2034 at 07:04 in ♏ Scorpio.
Moon is 366 386 km (227 662 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 970 km (251 637 mi).
6 days after its descending node on 30 August 2034 at 22:58 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2034 at 23:47 in ♍ Virgo.
20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
At 19:37 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.184°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.177° in its southern standstill point on 21 September 2034 at 02:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 6 days on 12 September 2034 at 16:14 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
