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 784 / 1737

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 784 of Meeus index or 1737 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.36 days

Length of current 784 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 785 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠301.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠301.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠325.5°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 15:34, this is 15 days after last perigee on 1 June 2063 at 01:18 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2063 at 13:31 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 404 594 km

This apogee Moon is 404 594 km (251 403 mi) away from Earth. It is 814 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 115 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 3 June 2063 at 11:31 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 June 2063 at 07:39 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 11 June 2063 at 12:30 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.086°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.102° in the next northern standstill on 25 June 2063 at 20:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 26 June 2063 at 10:25 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
