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 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 25 May 2029 at 22:19 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 395 339 km

Moon is 395 339 km (245 652 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 105 km (251 721 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 29 May 2029 at 17:34 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 28 May 2029 at 14:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.396°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.392° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2029 at 22:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 12 June 2029 at 03:51 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
