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 714 / 1667

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 714 of Meeus index or 1667 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.47 days

Length of current 714 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 19 minutes. It is 16 minutes longer than next lunation 715 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠291.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠291.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠318.8°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 18 October 2057 at 22:29 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 October 2057 at 17:10 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 390 482 km

Moon is 390 482 km (242 634 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 513 km (226 498 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 17 October 2057 at 23:41 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 31 October 2057 at 13:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 19 October 2057 at 06:50 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.312°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.406° in the next southern standstill on 1 November 2057 at 16:37 in ♑ Capricorn.
