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 931 / 1884

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 931 of Meeus index or 1884 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 931 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 932 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠113.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠113.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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 before apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 2 May 2075 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 396 193 km

Moon is 396 193 km (246 183 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 811 km (252 159 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 5 May 2075 at 05:59 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 May 2075 at 06:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 4 May 2075 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.503°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.600° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2075 at 23:38 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 14 May 2075 at 23:22 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
