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 957 / 1910

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 957 of Meeus index or 1910 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 957 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes shorter than next lunation 958 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠50.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠50.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠80.3°. 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

7 days after point of perigee on 18 May 2077 at 19:58 in ♈ Aries. 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 30 May 2077 at 18:38 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 396 276 km

Moon is 396 276 km (246 234 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 357 km (251 256 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 22 May 2077 at 13:10 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 June 2077 at 23:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 24 May 2077 at 22:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.836°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.830° in the next southern standstill on 8 June 2077 at 08:58 in ♑ Capricorn.
