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 1166 / 2119

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1166 of Meeus index or 2119 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 1166 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1167 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠45.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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 perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 May 2094 at 13:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 378 261 km

Moon is 378 261 km (235 040 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 651 km (229 690 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 20 April 2094 at 16:57 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 May 2094 at 20:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 20 April 2094 at 20:13 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.077°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.185° in the next southern standstill on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 14 May 2094 at 12:09 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
