There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 376 / 1329

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 376 of Meeus index or 1329 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 376 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 377 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠189°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠189°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠213.7°. 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

9 days after point of perigee on 14 June 2030 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 400 066 km

Moon is 400 066 km (248 589 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 881 km (252 203 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 15 June 2030 at 05:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 June 2030 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 15 June 2030 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.735°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.734° in the next northern standstill on 29 June 2030 at 02:45 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 30 June 2030 at 21:34 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
