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 1135 / 2088

The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1135 of Meeus index or 2088 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 1135 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 1136 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠349.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠349.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠4.7°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 27 October 2091 at 22:34 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2091 at 21:06 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 284 km

Moon is 405 284 km (251 832 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 866 km (221 746 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 22 October 2091 at 03:28 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 November 2091 at 17:50 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 17 October 2091 at 23:45 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.095°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.224° in the next northern standstill on 1 November 2091 at 15:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 11 November 2091 at 03:42 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
