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 426 / 1379

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 426 of Meeus index or 1379 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.33 days

Length of current 426 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 427 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠45.9°. 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

1 day after point of perigee on 12 July 2034 at 19:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 366 293 km

Moon is 366 293 km (227 604 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 334 km (251 241 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 7 July 2034 at 14:33 in ♓ Pisces, 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 20 July 2034 at 09:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 30 June 2034 at 23:50 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.423°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.385° in the next northern standstill on 14 July 2034 at 05:13 in ♋ Cancer.
