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 488 / 1441

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 488 of Meeus index or 1441 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 488 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 33 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 489 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠199.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠199.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠226.3°. 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

4 days after point of perigee on 4 July 2039 at 20:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 July 2039 at 03:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 380 073 km

Moon is 380 073 km (236 166 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 452 km (251 936 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 4 July 2039 at 14:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 July 2039 at 06:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 5 July 2039 at 22:01 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.696°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.697° in the next northern standstill on 19 July 2039 at 22:01 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 21 July 2039 at 07:54 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
