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 672 / 1625

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 672 of Meeus index or 1625 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 672 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 40 minutes. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 673 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠288.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠288.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠316.1°. 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 perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2054 at 00:43 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 June 2054 at 21:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 381 273 km

Moon is 381 273 km (236 912 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 007 km (226 805 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 29 May 2054 at 02:37 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 June 2054 at 07:33 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 24 May 2054 at 11:01 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.115°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.164° in the next northern standstill on 7 June 2054 at 14:08 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 6 June 2054 at 02:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
