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 720 / 1673

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 720 of Meeus index or 1673 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 720 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 721 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠50.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠82.2°. 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

6 days after point of perigee on 21 March 2058 at 01:53 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 1 April 2058 at 23:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 391 293 km

Moon is 391 293 km (243 138 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 315 km (251 230 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 17 March 2058 at 01:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 30 March 2058 at 00:38 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 18 March 2058 at 14:46 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.900°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.018° in the next northern standstill on 31 March 2058 at 23:15 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 8 April 2058 at 22:55 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
