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 1152 / 2105

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1152 of Meeus index or 2105 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 1152 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 12 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 1153 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠43.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.1°. 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 before apogee

7 days after point of perigee on 22 February 2093 at 20:31 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 6 March 2093 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 396 683 km

Moon is 396 683 km (246 487 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 492 km (251 340 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 23 February 2093 at 08:08 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 March 2093 at 06:15 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 21 February 2093 at 17:26 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.882°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.943° in the next northern standstill on 7 March 2093 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
