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 1030 / 1983

At 02:09 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1030 of Meeus index or 1983 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.67 days

29 days, 16 hours and 4 minutes is the length of new lunation 1030. It is 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1031 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 20 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 43 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠156.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠180.3°. 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 apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 4 April 2083 at 03:43 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 19 April 2083 at 13:44 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 404 016 km

Moon is 404 016 km (251 044 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 306 km (252 467 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 11 April 2083 at 07:14 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 25 April 2083 at 22:02 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

6 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 7 April 2083 at 11:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.208°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.084° in the next northern standstill on 21 April 2083 at 19:08 in ♊ Gemini.
