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 1043 / 1996

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 1043 of Meeus index or 1996 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1043 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 41 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1044 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠128.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠128.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157°. 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

11 days after point of perigee on 21 May 2084 at 12:03 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 June 2084 at 20:10 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 401 149 km

Moon is 401 149 km (249 262 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 150 km (252 370 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 23 May 2084 at 12:47 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 June 2084 at 12:27 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 21 May 2084 at 11:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.645°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.616° in the next northern standstill on 3 June 2084 at 23:20 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 3 June 2084 at 10:13 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
