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 611 / 1564

At 14:00 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 611 of Meeus index or 1564 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.62 days

29 days, 14 hours and 50 minutes is the length of new lunation 611. It is 27 minutes shorter than next lunation 612 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 57 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠136.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠136.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠162.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 19 May 2049 at 19:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 June 2049 at 14:39 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 398 888 km

Moon is 398 888 km (247 858 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 617 km (252 039 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♊ Gemini at 11:41 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 14 June 2049 at 17:59 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 18 May 2049 at 21:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.086°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.085° in the next northern standstill on 1 June 2049 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini.
