Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 548 / 1501

At 19:42 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 548 of Meeus index or 1501 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.33 days

29 days, 7 hours and 57 minutes is the length of new lunation 548. It is 1 hour and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 549 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠328.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠328.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.6°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 17 April 2044 at 20:46 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 April 2044 at 18:30 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 371 040 km

Moon is 371 040 km (230 554 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 200 km (225 061 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 24 April 2044 at 08:06 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 May 2044 at 23:24 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

3 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 17 April 2044 at 18:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.526°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.450° in the next northern standstill on 1 May 2044 at 05:01 in ♊ Gemini.
