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 437 / 1390

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 437 of Meeus index or 1390 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.3 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 17 minutes. It is 38 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 5 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠354.2°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 24 May 2035 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 June 2035 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 373 778 km

The Moon is 373 778 km (232 255 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 357 km (222 051 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 30 May 2035 at 10:00 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 11 June 2035 at 20:42 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 25 May 2035 at 00:53 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.782°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.820° at the point of next northern standstill on 7 June 2035 at 10:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 6 June 2035 at 03:21 in ♊ Gemini 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.
