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 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 17 of Meeus index or 970 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 17 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 18 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠299.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠299.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠324.1°. 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°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 19:48, this is 15 days after last perigee on 27 May 2001 at 07:07 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 June 2001 at 17:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 404 630 km

This apogee Moon is 404 630 km (251 425 mi) away from Earth. It is 778 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 079 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 7 June 2001 at 17:37 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 June 2001 at 22:11 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2001 at 05:02 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.414°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.418° in the next northern standstill on 22 June 2001 at 07:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 21 June 2001 at 11:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
