Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 12 October 2034 at 07:33.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♐ Sagittarius

Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♐ Sagittarius tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1769"

Lunar disc appears visually 8.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1769" and ∠1925".

Hunter Moon after 11 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2034 after 11 days on 27 October 2034 at 12:42.

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 430 / 1383

The Moon is 4 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.

Synodic month length 29.74 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 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 5 hours longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠141.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠141.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠168.1°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 00:06. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 30 September 2034 at 04:10 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next perigee on 28 October 2034 at 10:16 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 406 022 km

This apogee Moon is 406 022 km (252 290 mi) away from Earth. It is 614 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 687 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

6 days after ascending node on 10 October 2034 at 06:34 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 October 2034 at 18:23 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

6 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 before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 4 October 2034 at 01:15 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.200°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-18.265° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 October 2034 at 10:02 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 27 October 2034 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus 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.
