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 253 / 1206

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 253 of Meeus index or 1206 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 52 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 17 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠263.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠263.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠296.9°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 30 June 2020 at 02:09 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 12 July 2020 at 19:27 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 402 907 km

The Moon is 402 907 km (250 355 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 201 km (251 159 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 4 July 2020 at 03:18 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 July 2020 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 5 July 2020 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.064°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.069° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 July 2020 at 11:51 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 20 July 2020 at 17:33 in ♋ Cancer the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
