Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 4 days on 25 November 2034 at 22:32.
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 ∠11° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 1.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1911" and ∠1946".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2034 after 24 days on 25 December 2034 at 08:54.
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.
The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 431 of Meeus index or 1384 from Brown series.
Length of current 431 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 next lunation 432 length.
Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠192.5°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
4 days after point of perigee on 25 November 2034 at 22:06 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 December 2034 at 10:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
Moon is 375 045 km (233 042 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 607 km (252 654 mi).
9 days after its descending node on 21 November 2034 at 00:41 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 December 2034 at 11:15 in ♍ Virgo.
24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
2 days after previous North standstill on 27 November 2034 at 19:42 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.488°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.553° in the next southern standstill on 12 December 2034 at 00:24 in ♑ Capricorn.
After 10 days on 10 December 2034 at 20:14 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
