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 1204 / 2157

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1204 of Meeus index or 2157 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 1204 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 34 minutes. It is 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1205 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. 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

11 days after point of apogee on 28 May 2097 at 05:57 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 10 June 2097 at 09:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 366 109 km

Moon is 366 109 km (227 490 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 390 km (222 072 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 7 June 2097 at 13:23 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2097 at 09:05 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 28 May 2097 at 19:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.488°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.467° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2097 at 04:55 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 10 June 2097 at 02:13 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
