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 1143 / 2096

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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

1 day after point of apogee on 1 July 2092 at 10:09 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 July 2092 at 01:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 405 227 km

Moon is 405 227 km (251 796 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 975 km (224 921 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 22 June 2092 at 19:17 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 July 2092 at 07:36 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 20 June 2092 at 09:44 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.096°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.112° in the next northern standstill on 4 July 2092 at 12:51 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 4 July 2092 at 20:10 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
