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 992 / 1945

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last 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 before apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 30 March 2080 at 10:45 in ♌ Leo. 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 12 April 2080 at 02:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 402 312 km

Moon is 402 312 km (249 985 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 275 km (251 205 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 4 April 2080 at 06:19 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 April 2080 at 16:44 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

18 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 28 March 2080 at 03:44 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.594°. Next day 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 10 days

After 10 days on 20 April 2080 at 01:00 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
