There is high New Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.

New lunation 1015 / 1968

At 20:46 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1015 of Meeus index or 1968 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.75 days

29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 1015. It is 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 1016 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠122.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠122.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠154.1°. 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

10 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2082 at 16:31 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 394 661 km

Moon is 394 661 km (245 231 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 315 km (251 851 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 17 January 2082 at 15:31 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.230°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.278° in the next northern standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini.
