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 854 / 1807

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 854 of Meeus index or 1807 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 854 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 855 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠310.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before apogee

15 days after point of perigee on 26 January 2069 at 07:47 in ♓ Pisces. 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 11 February 2069 at 08:23 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 405 364 km

Moon is 405 364 km (251 882 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 051 km (251 687 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 30 January 2069 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 February 2069 at 15:55 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 1 February 2069 at 18:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.473°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.335° in the next southern standstill on 16 February 2069 at 07:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 21 February 2069 at 15:17 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
