Spring tide

There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 932 / 1885

At 23:22 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 932 of Meeus index or 1885 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.64 days

29 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes is the length of new lunation 932. It is 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 933 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠145.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠145.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠170.5°. 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

12 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 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 402 433 km

Moon is 402 433 km (250 060 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 811 km (252 159 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 May 2075 at 06:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 4 May 2075 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.503°. Next 3 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.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
