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 834 / 1787

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 834 of Meeus index or 1787 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 834 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 35 minutes. It is 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 835 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 12 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠132.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠132.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠159.9°. 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 16 June 2067 at 03:04 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2067 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 147 km

Moon is 404 147 km (251 125 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 568 km (223 425 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 11 June 2067 at 19:56 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2067 at 02:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

18 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

5 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2067 at 14:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.109°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.109° in the next southern standstill on 25 June 2067 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 27 June 2067 at 02:52 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
