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 1051 / 2004

At 09:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1051 of Meeus index or 2004 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.46 days

29 days, 11 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 1051. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2084. It is 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1052 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠345.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.9°. 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 perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 15 December 2084 at 20:52 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 December 2084 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 364 824 km

Moon is 364 824 km (226 691 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 219 km (222 587 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 16:18 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 26 December 2084 at 05:43 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-24.910°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠24.917° in the next northern standstill on 8 January 2085 at 06:01 in ♊ Gemini.
