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 1217 / 2170

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1217 of Meeus index or 2170 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 1217 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes. It is 58 minutes longer than next lunation 1218 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠320.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.4°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 01:07, this is 15 days after last perigee on 2 June 2098 at 05:57 in ♋ Cancer. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 30 June 2098 at 07:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 405 408 km

This apogee Moon is 405 408 km (251 909 mi) away from Earth. It is 0 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 301 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 9 June 2098 at 01:58 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 June 2098 at 14:19 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 14 June 2098 at 16:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.153°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.163° in the next northern standstill on 28 June 2098 at 19:01 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 29 June 2098 at 02:06 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
