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 1118 / 2071

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1118 of Meeus index or 2071 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 1118 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 34 minutes longer than next lunation 1119 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠280.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠280.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 445 km

Moon is 364 445 km (226 456 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 160 km (251 133 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 01:10 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 30 May 2090 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.414°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.449° in the next southern standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 12 June 2090 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
