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 669 / 1622

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 669 of Meeus index or 1622 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.77 days

Length of current 669 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 670 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠193.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠220.6°. 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 apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 21 February 2054 at 07:51 in ♌ Leo. 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 5 March 2054 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 391 652 km

Moon is 391 652 km (243 361 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 875 km (252 199 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 22 February 2054 at 12:29 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 March 2054 at 13:36 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 18 February 2054 at 10:09 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.654°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.648° in the next southern standstill on 3 March 2054 at 09:21 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 9 March 2054 at 12:46 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
