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 859 / 1812

The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 859 of Meeus index or 1812 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 859 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 860 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 24 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠40.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠66.4°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 28 June 2069 at 10:15 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 July 2069 at 15:08 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 385 540 km

Moon is 385 540 km (239 563 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 840 km (229 187 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 29 June 2069 at 14:55 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 July 2069 at 03:06 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 2 July 2069 at 18:22 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.920°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.867° in the next northern standstill on 15 July 2069 at 22:08 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 18 July 2069 at 11:13 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
