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 414 / 1367

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 414 of Meeus index or 1367 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 414 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 6 minutes. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 415 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠74.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠74.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.5°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 21 June 2033 at 01:28 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 July 2033 at 04:55 in ♎ Libra.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 390 841 km

Moon is 390 841 km (242 857 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 093 km (251 092 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 21 June 2033 at 08:42 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 July 2033 at 01:29 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 26 June 2033 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.717°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.676° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2033 at 14:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 12 July 2033 at 09:29 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
