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 992 / 1945

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 992 of Meeus index or 1945 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 992 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 2 hours and 57 minutes longer than next lunation 993 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠264.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠264.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.1°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 10:45, this is 15 days after last apogee on 15 March 2080 at 06:06 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 12 April 2080 at 02:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 369 233 km

This perigee Moon is 369 233 km (229 431 mi) away from Earth. It is 6 725 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 1 123 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 22 March 2080 at 08:10 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 April 2080 at 06:19 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 28 March 2080 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.594°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.592° in the next southern standstill on 10 April 2080 at 12:43 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 4 April 2080 at 11:24 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
