Moon phase and lunation details

3 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 3 days on 20 September 2034 at 18:39.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the afternoon and sets after midnight to early morning. It is visible to the southeast in early evening and it is up for most of the night.

Moon in ♒ Aquarius

Moon is passing about ∠15° of ♒ Aquarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1851"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1851" and ∠1913".

Harvest Moon after 3 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2034 after 3 days on 28 September 2034 at 02:57.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

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 429 / 1382

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 429 of Meeus index or 1382 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes. It is 2 hours and 25 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠108.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠108.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠141.4°.

Moon before apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 18 September 2034 at 07:04 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 September 2034 at 04:10 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 387 304 km

The Moon is 387 304 km (240 660 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 430 km (225 204 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 12 September 2034 at 23:47 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 27 September 2034 at 08:33 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 21 September 2034 at 02:17 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.177°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.200° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 October 2034 at 01:15 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 28 September 2034 at 02:57 in ♈ Aries the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
