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 721 / 1674

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 721 of Meeus index or 1674 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 721 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 722 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠82.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠118.2°. 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

10 days after point of perigee on 15 April 2058 at 18:36 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 April 2058 at 19:18 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 400 548 km

Moon is 400 548 km (248 889 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 300 km (251 220 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♊ Gemini at 05:25 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 10 May 2058 at 07:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 05:25 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2058 at 20:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.135°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.222° in the next northern standstill on 28 April 2058 at 07:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 8 May 2058 at 10:12 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
