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 1119 / 2072

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1119 of Meeus index or 2072 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 1119 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 8 minutes. It is 28 minutes longer than next lunation 1120 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 36 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 33 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠310°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠310°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠331.5°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2090 at 23:26 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 372 341 km

Moon is 372 341 km (231 362 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 238 km (227 570 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 19 June 2090 at 18:49 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2090 at 01:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 27 June 2090 at 08:45 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.446°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.430° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2090 at 07:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 11 July 2090 at 17:02 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
