Moderate tide

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 1066 / 2019

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1066 of Meeus index or 2019 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1066 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 minute longer than next lunation 1067 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠2.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠2.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.1°. 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 after apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 28 March 2086 at 11:54 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 April 2086 at 15:10 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 989 km

Moon is 386 989 km (240 464 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 914 km (223 019 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 14:12 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 17 April 2086 at 03:54 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 14:12 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon in southern standstill

At 20:32 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-22.622°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠22.550° in its northern standstill point on 17 April 2086 at 10:50 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 13 April 2086 at 16:53 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
