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 1143 / 2096

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 1143 of Meeus index or 2096 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 1143 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer than next lunation 1144 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠190.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠215.3°. 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

2 days after point of apogee on 4 June 2092 at 01:49 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2092 at 20:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 403 181 km

Moon is 403 181 km (250 525 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 196 km (222 573 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 26 May 2092 at 13:44 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 June 2092 at 04:20 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

23 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 23 May 2092 at 22:16 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.010°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.088° in the next northern standstill on 7 June 2092 at 05:48 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 19 June 2092 at 16:56 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
