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 932 / 1885

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 932 of Meeus index or 1885 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 932 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 17 minutes. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 18 May 2075 at 08:43 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 May 2075 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 518 km

Moon is 404 518 km (251 356 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 250 km (222 606 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 06:26 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 1 June 2075 at 11:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 06:26 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 18 May 2075 at 23:38 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.600°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.636° in the next southern standstill on 1 June 2075 at 07:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 30 May 2075 at 02:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
