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 1006 / 1959

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1006 of Meeus index or 1959 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.45 days

Length of current 1006 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 1007 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠265.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠265.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠298.3°. 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 perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 30 May 2081 at 09:21 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 June 2081 at 17:00 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 383 729 km

Moon is 383 729 km (238 438 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 270 km (228 832 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 31 May 2081 at 13:42 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2081 at 20:45 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 24 May 2081 at 19:52 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.376°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.340° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2081 at 04:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 7 June 2081 at 09:01 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
