Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 3 days on 12 October 2034 at 07:33.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.5% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1925".
Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2034 after 12 days on 27 October 2034 at 12:42.
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 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 430 of Meeus index or 1383 from Brown series.
Length of current 430 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 431 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This New Moon true anomaly is ∠141.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.1°. 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°).
15 days after point of perigee on 30 September 2034 at 04:10 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 October 2034 at 00:06 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 405 494 km (251 962 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 022 km (252 290 mi).
5 days after its ascending node on 10 October 2034 at 06:34 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 October 2034 at 18:23 in ♓ Pisces.
5 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.
11 days after previous North standstill on 4 October 2034 at 01:15 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.200°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.265° in the next southern standstill on 18 October 2034 at 10:02 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 12 days on 27 October 2034 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
