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 411 / 1364

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 411 of Meeus index or 1364 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 5 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠8.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠8.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.1°.

Moon before apogee

14 days after point of apogee on 12 April 2033 at 02:26 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 April 2033 at 14:44 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 302 km

The Moon is 363 302 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 360 572 km (224 049 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 14 April 2033 at 11:28 in ♎ Libra. 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 27 April 2033 at 21:57 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.596°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.619° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 May 2033 at 06:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 29 April 2033 at 02:46 in ♉ Taurus 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.
