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 831 / 1784

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 831 of Meeus index or 1784 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 831 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 832 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 20 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠63.8°. 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

4 days after point of perigee on 13 March 2067 at 00:40 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 March 2067 at 19:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 8 March 2067 at 17:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.547°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.428° in the next northern standstill on 21 March 2067 at 15:43 in ♊ Gemini.
