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 1140 / 2093

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 1140 of Meeus index or 2093 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 1140 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 45 minutes. It is 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 1141 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 1 minute longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠106.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠106.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠140.8°. 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 13 March 2092 at 23:06 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 March 2092 at 19:17 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 958 km

Moon is 403 958 km (251 008 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 589 km (225 302 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 6 March 2092 at 07:01 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 20 March 2092 at 18:51 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 2 March 2092 at 23:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.447°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.509° in the next northern standstill on 17 March 2092 at 07:54 in ♋ Cancer.
