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 1067 / 2020

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1067 of Meeus index or 2020 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1067 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2086. It is 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 1068 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.1°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:33, this is 15 days after last apogee on 24 April 2086 at 22:37 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 22 May 2086 at 15:25 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 363 362 km

This perigee Moon is 363 362 km (225 783 mi) away from Earth. It is 854 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 6 994 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 1 May 2086 at 17:00 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 14 May 2086 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

8 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 2 May 2086 at 01:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.482°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.466° in the next northern standstill on 14 May 2086 at 20:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 13 May 2086 at 01:41 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
