Neap tide

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 833 / 1786

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 833 of Meeus index or 1786 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 833 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 834 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠98.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠98.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠132.6°. 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 before apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 4 May 2067 at 04:17 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 May 2067 at 10:35 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 977 km

Moon is 403 977 km (251 020 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 564 km (251 384 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 15 May 2067 at 12:44 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2067 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

15 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 15 May 2067 at 07:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.108°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.107° in the next southern standstill on 29 May 2067 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 28 May 2067 at 18:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
