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 832 / 1785

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 832 of Meeus index or 1785 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 832 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 833 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠63.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠63.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠98.3°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 04:17, this is 12 days after last apogee on 21 April 2067 at 15:37 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 19 May 2067 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 368 880 km

This perigee Moon is 368 880 km (229 211 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 372 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 476 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 2 May 2067 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 May 2067 at 12:44 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 2 May 2067 at 04:12 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.143°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.108° in the next northern standstill on 15 May 2067 at 07:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 13 May 2067 at 07:20 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
