Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 1 day on 27 October 2034 at 12:42.
Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.
Moon is passing about ∠19° of ♉ Taurus tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 2% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2034 after 28 days on 25 November 2034 at 22:32.
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.
The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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°).
Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 10:16, this is 12 days after last apogee on 16 October 2034 at 00:06 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 12 November 2034 at 09:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.
This perigee Moon is 358 119 km (222 525 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 389 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 237 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.
3 days after its descending node on 24 October 2034 at 18:23 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 November 2034 at 10:15 in ♍ Virgo.
18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
10 days after previous South standstill on 18 October 2034 at 10:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.265°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.332° in the next northern standstill on 31 October 2034 at 08:54 in ♋ Cancer.
After 13 days on 11 November 2034 at 01:16 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
