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 1094 / 2047

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 1094 of Meeus index or 2047 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 1094 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2088. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1095 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠3.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.9°. 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

13 days after point of apogee on 2 July 2088 at 03:52 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 17 July 2088 at 05:29 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 677 km

Moon is 363 677 km (225 978 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 287 km (223 251 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 12 July 2088 at 16:44 in ♈ Aries, 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 25 July 2088 at 07:29 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 before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 2 July 2088 at 04:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.425°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.354° in the next northern standstill on 16 July 2088 at 02:03 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 18 July 2088 at 08:38 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
