Moderate tide

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 795 / 1748

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 795 of Meeus index or 1748 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 795 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 27 minutes longer than next lunation 796 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠206.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.2°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 29 April 2064 at 13:49 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 373 075 km

Moon is 373 075 km (231 818 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 314 km (251 850 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 25 April 2064 at 16:11 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 May 2064 at 10:23 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 21 April 2064 at 08:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.520°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.444° in the next southern standstill on 4 May 2064 at 00:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 16 May 2064 at 09:55 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
