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 1131 / 2084

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1131 of Meeus index or 2084 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.48 days

Length of current 1131 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 1132 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠245.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠245.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.5°. 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

8 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2091 at 19:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 June 2091 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 378 008 km

Moon is 378 008 km (234 883 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 857 km (227 954 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 7 June 2091 at 23:53 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 June 2091 at 07:10 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

25 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

2 days after previous North standstill on 17 June 2091 at 21:16 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.975°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.969° in the next southern standstill on 30 June 2091 at 20:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 1 July 2091 at 01:54 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
