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 434 / 1387

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 434 of Meeus index or 1387 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 434 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 435 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠255.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠255.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.6°. 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

5 days after point of perigee on 18 February 2035 at 05:31 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 March 2035 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 385 053 km

Moon is 385 053 km (239 261 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 374 km (251 266 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 04:20 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 18 February 2035 at 04:16 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.402°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in the next southern standstill on 4 March 2035 at 01:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 9 March 2035 at 23:09 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
