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 801 / 1754

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 801 of Meeus index or 1754 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 801 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 802 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠359.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠359.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠14.9°. 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 after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 10 October 2064 at 11:14 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 October 2064 at 01:15 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 381 755 km

Moon is 381 755 km (237 212 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 377 km (252 511 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 6 October 2064 at 02:42 in ♌ Leo, 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 18 October 2064 at 15:14 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 14 October 2064 at 19:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.067°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.938° in the next northern standstill on 29 October 2064 at 10:35 in ♊ Gemini.
