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 413 / 1366

At 11:36 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 413 of Meeus index or 1366 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.4 days

29 days, 9 hours and 30 minutes is the length of new lunation 413. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 414 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠46°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠46°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 25 May 2033 at 13:01 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 June 2033 at 10:13 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 374 499 km

Moon is 374 499 km (232 703 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 291 km (251 215 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 25 May 2033 at 05:37 in ♈ Aries, 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 7 June 2033 at 22:45 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 16 May 2033 at 20:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.668°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.697° in the next northern standstill on 29 May 2033 at 17:10 in ♊ Gemini.
