Neap tide

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 422 / 1375

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 422 of Meeus index or 1375 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 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 40 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 29 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠317.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠317.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠337.6°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 9 March 2034 at 16:05 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 21 March 2034 at 18:12 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 397 198 km

The Moon is 397 198 km (246 807 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 963 km (223 671 mi).

Moon after ascending node

6 days after ascending node on 6 March 2034 at 14:21 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 20 March 2034 at 15:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

6 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 19:10 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.147°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2034. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.139° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 26 March 2034 at 12:34.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 20 March 2034 at 10:14 in ♓ Pisces 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.
