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 561 / 1514

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 561 of Meeus index or 1514 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.36 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 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 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠305.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠305.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠328°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 5 June 2045 at 03:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 17 June 2045 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 391 166 km

The Moon is 391 166 km (243 059 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 268 km (225 103 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 5 June 2045 at 23:31 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 June 2045 at 04:27 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 31 May 2045 at 22:23 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.697°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.696° at the point of next northern standstill on 15 June 2045 at 03:12 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 15 June 2045 at 03:05 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.
