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 1179 / 2132

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 1179 of Meeus index or 2132 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1179 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes shorter than next lunation 1180 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠26°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠26°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠47.3°. 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 14 May 2095 at 12:49 in ♎ Libra. 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 30 May 2095 at 08:46 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 386 880 km

Moon is 386 880 km (240 396 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 631 km (227 193 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♐ Sagittarius at 00:04 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet ascending node on 2 June 2095 at 21:43 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before southern standstill

13 days after previous North standstill on 8 May 2095 at 02:21 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.867°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.914° in the next southern standstill on 22 May 2095 at 16:48 in ♑ Capricorn.
