Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 4 days on 11 November 2034 at 01:16.

Moonrise and moonset

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

Moon in ♑ Capricorn

Moon is passing about ∠12° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1790"

Lunar disc appears visually 8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1790" and ∠1940".

Beaver Moon after 10 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2034 after 10 days on 25 November 2034 at 22:32.

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 431 / 1384

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 431 of Meeus index or 1384 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.79 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2034. It is 9 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 49 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠168.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠168.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠192.5°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 12 November 2034 at 09:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 November 2034 at 22:06 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 382 km

The Moon is 400 382 km (248 786 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 448 km (221 487 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 6 November 2034 at 10:15 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 November 2034 at 00:41 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

9 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

1 day since the previous standstill on 14 November 2034 at 17:11 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.431°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.488° at the point of next northern standstill on 27 November 2034 at 19:42 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 25 November 2034 at 22:32 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.
