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 1093 / 2046

At 18:49 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1093 of Meeus index or 2046 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.3 days

29 days, 7 hours and 5 minutes is the length of new lunation 1093. It is 20 minutes longer than next lunation 1094 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠348.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.5°. 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 20:56, this is 13 days after last apogee on 5 June 2088 at 01:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 2 July 2088 at 03:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 292 km

This perigee Moon is 357 292 km (222 011 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 216 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 064 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 15 June 2088 at 12:42 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 June 2088 at 05:57 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 14:44 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.431°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.425° in its southern standstill point on 2 July 2088 at 04:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun on this date and this alignment forms Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
