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 484 / 1437

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 484 of Meeus index or 1437 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 42 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 5 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠83.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠83.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠120.7°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 18:38. It is 11 days after previous apogee on 1 March 2039 at 22:42 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 16 days, until point of next apogee on 29 March 2039 at 17:29 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 366 000 km

This perigee Moon is 366 000 km (227 422 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 492 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 356 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 4 March 2039 at 09:49 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 March 2039 at 10:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 5 March 2039 at 12:11 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.115°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.232° at the point of next southern standstill on 18 March 2039 at 11:25 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 24 March 2039 at 17:59 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.
