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 1216 / 2169

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 1216 of Meeus index or 2169 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 1216 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 51 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 1217 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠294.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠320.4°. 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 apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 6 May 2098 at 02:31 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 21 May 2098 at 09:03 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 404 111 km

Moon is 404 111 km (251 103 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 550 km (251 376 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 12 May 2098 at 22:21 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 May 2098 at 09:11 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 18 May 2098 at 09:52 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.237°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.197° in the next northern standstill on 1 June 2098 at 09:59 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 30 May 2098 at 18:23 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
