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 598 / 1551

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 598 of Meeus index or 1551 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 598 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 52 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2048. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 599 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 8 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠163°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠163°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠186.1°. 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 apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 27 May 2048 at 23:56 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 June 2048 at 20:20 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 400 029 km

Moon is 400 029 km (248 566 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 480 km (252 575 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 29 May 2048 at 03:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 12 June 2048 at 01:40 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 28 May 2048 at 12:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.749°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.745° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2048 at 06:28 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 11 June 2048 at 12:50 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
