Crescent ♑ Capricorn
Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 1 day on 10 December 2034 at 20:14.
Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♑ Capricorn tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 8.8% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1784" and ∠1949".
Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2034 after 12 days on 25 December 2034 at 08:54.
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 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 432 of Meeus index or 1385 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 30 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°).
The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 58 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠192.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠220.5°.
3 days after point of apogee on 9 December 2034 at 10:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 24 December 2034 at 10:34 in ♊ Gemini.
The Moon is 401 774 km (249 651 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 118 km (222 524 mi).
9 days after ascending node on 3 December 2034 at 11:15 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 18 December 2034 at 02:21 in ♓ Pisces.
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.
At 00:24 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.553°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2034. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.552° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 25 December 2034 at 08:20.
In 12 days on 25 December 2034 at 08:54 in ♋ Cancer 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.
