Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 20 October 2034 at 12:03.

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 is entering ♈ Aries

Moon is passing first ∠4° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1930"

Lunar disc appears visually 0% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1930" and ∠1930".

Hunter Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Hunter Moon of October 2034 after 2 days on 27 October 2034 at 12:42.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Moderate tide

There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.

Lunation 430 / 1383

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 430 of Meeus index or 1383 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

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 before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 16 October 2034 at 00:06 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 28 October 2034 at 10:16 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 371 481 km

The Moon is 371 481 km (230 828 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 119 km (222 525 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 24 October 2034 at 18:23 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 November 2034 at 10:15 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

15 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 before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 18 October 2034 at 10:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.265°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.332° at the point of next northern standstill on 31 October 2034 at 08:54 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 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.
