Neap tide

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 1128 / 2081

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1128 of Meeus index or 2081 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.73 days

Length of current 1128 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes longer than next lunation 1129 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠165.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠165.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠189.5°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 21 March 2091 at 17:48 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 April 2091 at 03:26 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 389 950 km

Moon is 389 950 km (242 304 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 783 km (221 695 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 18 March 2091 at 15:30 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 April 2091 at 21:03 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

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 before northern standstill

14 days after previous South standstill on 13 March 2091 at 06:18 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.480°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.531° in the next northern standstill on 28 March 2091 at 00:55 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 4 April 2091 at 01:31 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
