Neap tide

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 562 / 1515

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 562 of Meeus index or 1515 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.31 days

Length of current 562 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 24 minutes. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 563 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠328°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠328°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.4°. 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 2 July 2045 at 18:04 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 15 July 2045 at 07:12 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 370 640 km

Moon is 370 640 km (230 305 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 581 km (222 812 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 3 July 2045 at 02:35 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 July 2045 at 11:05 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

9 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 12:55 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.744°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.770° in its southern standstill point on 25 July 2045 at 09:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 14 July 2045 at 10:28 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
