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 921 / 1874

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 18 July 2074 at 12:55 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 August 2074 at 03:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 226 km

Moon is 405 226 km (251 796 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 536 km (228 376 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 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 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 July 2074 at 05:30 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 8 July 2074 at 08:12 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.006°. Next 3 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 4 days

After 4 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.
