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 1008 / 1961

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 1008 of Meeus index or 1961 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 1008 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes. It is 2 minutes longer than next lunation 1009 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 4 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠322.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠322.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠341.4°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 9 July 2081 at 01:02 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 July 2081 at 19:37 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 363 298 km

Moon is 363 298 km (225 743 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 426 km (251 920 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 22:38 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet ascending node on 24 July 2081 at 18:52 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 5 July 2081 at 12:53 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.356°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.389° in the next southern standstill on 18 July 2081 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
