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 451 / 1404

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 451 of Meeus index or 1404 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 451 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 7 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2036. It is 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 452 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.1°. 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 before perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 10 July 2036 at 16:20 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2036 at 18:38 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 384 645 km

Moon is 384 645 km (239 007 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 534 km (222 161 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 11 July 2036 at 00:53 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 24 July 2036 at 11:36 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 7 July 2036 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.902°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.877° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2036 at 00:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 23 July 2036 at 10:17 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
