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 423 / 1376

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 423 of Meeus index or 1376 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 423 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than next lunation 424 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠337.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠337.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠353.9°. 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 21 March 2034 at 18:12 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 April 2034 at 03:44 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 363 526 km

Moon is 363 526 km (225 885 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 054 km (252 310 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 20 March 2034 at 15:22 in ♓ Pisces, 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 2 April 2034 at 21:12 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 13 March 2034 at 19:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.147°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.139° in the next northern standstill on 26 March 2034 at 12:34 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 3 April 2034 at 19:19 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
