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 1189 / 2142

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1189 of Meeus index or 2142 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 1189 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 26 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes longer than next lunation 1190 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 18 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 51 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠319.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠319.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠338.8°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 14 February 2096 at 17:34 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 26 February 2096 at 11:38 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 17 February 2096 at 03:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 March 2096 at 02:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 19 February 2096 at 20:23 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.822°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.928° in the next northern standstill on 3 March 2096 at 15:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 9 March 2096 at 01:37 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
