Moderate tide

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 587 / 1540

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 587 of Meeus index or 1540 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 587 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 588 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠240°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠240°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠274.9°. 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 apogee

6 days after point of perigee on 4 July 2047 at 04:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 July 2047 at 03:57 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 390 369 km

Moon is 390 369 km (242 564 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 370 km (251 264 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 7 July 2047 at 11:43 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 July 2047 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 5 July 2047 at 15:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.343°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.339° in the next northern standstill on 19 July 2047 at 18:19 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 22 July 2047 at 22:49 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
