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 1178 / 2131

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1178 of Meeus index or 2131 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.35 days

Length of current 1178 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 30 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2095. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1179 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 55 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26°. 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 apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 16 April 2095 at 22:45 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 May 2095 at 11:37 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 389 366 km

Moon is 389 366 km (241 941 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 703 km (224 130 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 19:35 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 6 May 2095 at 12:15 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 10 April 2095 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.694°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.812° in the next southern standstill on 25 April 2095 at 11:03 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 4 May 2095 at 01:06 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
