There is high Full Moon ocean tide on this date. Combined Sun and Moon gravitational tidal force working on Earth is strong, because of the Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.

Lunation 574 / 1527

The Moon is 14 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 574 of Meeus index or 1527 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 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 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 41 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠274°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠274°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠304.9°.

Moon after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 12 June 2046 at 03:54 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 25 June 2046 at 16:40 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 384 255 km

The Moon is 384 255 km (238 765 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 192 km (251 153 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 8 June 2046 at 09:42 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 June 2046 at 10:29 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon at southern standstill

At 02:43 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-26.680°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠26.701° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 2 July 2046 at 13:24.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
