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 1042 / 1995

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1042 of Meeus index or 1995 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 1042 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 40 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 1043 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠92.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠92.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.4°. 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

13 days after point of perigee on 27 March 2084 at 14:45 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 11 April 2084 at 15:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 405 023 km

Moon is 405 023 km (251 670 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 434 km (251 304 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 30 March 2084 at 08:50 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 April 2084 at 07:00 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon in northern standstill

At 10:37 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.857°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.760° in its southern standstill point on 24 April 2084 at 03:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 20 April 2084 at 17:52 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
