Moon phase and lunation details

4 days after First Quarter

Previous main lunar phase is the First Quarter before 4 days on 19 November 2034 at 04:01.

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 in ♈ Aries

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♈ Aries tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♉ Taurus later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1954"

Lunar disc appears visually 0.6% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1954" and ∠1943".

Beaver Moon after 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2034 after 2 days on 25 November 2034 at 22:32.

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 431 / 1384

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 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 before apogee

11 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 2 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 366 803 km

The Moon is 366 803 km (227 921 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 356 448 km (221 487 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 21 November 2034 at 00:41 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 3 December 2034 at 11:15 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

17 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

8 days 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 4 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 2 days

In 2 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.
