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 364 / 1317

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 364 of Meeus index or 1317 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.5 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 56 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 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 26 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠244.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠244.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠279.1°.

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 July 2029 at 11:25 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 394 927 km

The Moon is 394 927 km (245 396 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 666 km (229 700 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after ascending node on 26 June 2029 at 03:09 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 July 2029 at 12:33 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 05:56 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠24.399°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-24.380° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 22 July 2029 at 07:07.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 11 July 2029 at 15:51 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.
