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 921 / 1874

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 921 of Meeus index or 1874 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 921 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes longer than next lunation 922 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 44 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠218.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠218.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠250.9°. 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

6 days after point of perigee on 6 July 2074 at 14:26 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 392 748 km

Moon is 392 748 km (244 042 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 870 km (251 575 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 9 July 2074 at 19:46 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 July 2074 at 05:30 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 8 July 2074 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.006°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.003° in the next northern standstill on 22 July 2074 at 12:38 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 24 July 2074 at 03:07 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
