Moderate tide

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 1154 / 2107

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1154 of Meeus index or 2107 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 1154 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1155 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠109.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠142°. 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 perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 336 km

Moon is 365 336 km (227 009 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 700 km (252 090 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 15 May 2093 at 15:06 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

13 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 14 May 2093 at 12:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.516°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.600° in the next northern standstill on 28 May 2093 at 08:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 25 May 2093 at 06:07 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
