Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 364 / 1317

At 03:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 364 of Meeus index or 1317 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.5 days

29 days, 12 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 364. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes longer than next lunation 365 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠244.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠279.1°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 392 745 km

Moon is 392 745 km (244 040 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 596 km (227 792 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the first to the middle part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 11 June 2029 at 22:05 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.392°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.401° in the next southern standstill on 24 June 2029 at 23:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
