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 770 / 1723

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 770 of Meeus index or 1723 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 770 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 6 minutes. It is 2 hours and 17 minutes longer than next lunation 771 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 38 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 31 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠301.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325.7°. 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

8 days after point of apogee on 1 April 2062 at 14:06 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 April 2062 at 17:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 054 km

Moon is 375 054 km (233 048 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 906 km (228 606 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 8 April 2062 at 08:18 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 April 2062 at 04:56 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

2 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2062 at 23:35 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.700°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.655° in the next northern standstill on 14 April 2062 at 15:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 23 April 2062 at 16:57 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
