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 363 / 1316

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 363 of Meeus index or 1316 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 363 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 364 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠213.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠213.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠244.2°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 10 May 2029 at 07:00 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 May 2029 at 22:19 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 398 642 km

Moon is 398 642 km (247 705 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 586 km (224 679 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 2 May 2029 at 09:41 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 May 2029 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 1 May 2029 at 04:13 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.466°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.404° in the next northern standstill on 15 May 2029 at 15:58 in ♊ Gemini.
