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 450 / 1403

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 450 of Meeus index or 1403 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.33 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 53 minutes. It is 46 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 4 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠318.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠318.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠338.2°.

Moon before perigee

15 days after point of perigee on 28 May 2036 at 09:17 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 June 2036 at 05:06 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 405 424 km

The Moon is 405 424 km (251 919 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 205 km (251 783 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 30 May 2036 at 22:23 in ♌ Leo. 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 13 June 2036 at 20:47 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 10 June 2036 at 13:44 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.888°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.895° at the point of next northern standstill on 24 June 2036 at 13:24 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 24 June 2036 at 03:09 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.
