There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 1218 / 2171

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1218 of Meeus index or 2171 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 1218 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2098. It is 17 minutes shorter than next lunation 1219 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.4°. 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 after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 30 June 2098 at 07:43 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 July 2098 at 11:43 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 369 107 km

Moon is 369 107 km (229 352 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 183 km (252 390 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 23 June 2098 at 14:19 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 July 2098 at 02:56 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

10 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the beginning to the first part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 28 June 2098 at 19:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.163°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.167° in the next southern standstill on 11 July 2098 at 22:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 13 July 2098 at 10:35 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
