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 586 / 1539

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 586 of Meeus index or 1539 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes. It is 1 hour and 55 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠210.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠210.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠240°.

Moon after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 18 June 2047 at 10:22 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 July 2047 at 04:56 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 398 699 km

The Moon is 398 699 km (247 740 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 11 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 988 km (227 414 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 10 June 2047 at 02:05 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 24 June 2047 at 13:16 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

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

Moon at northern standstill

At 10:35 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠25.328°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-25.343° at the point of next standstill in ♐ Sagittarius on 5 July 2047 at 15:10.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 23 June 2047 at 10:36 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.
