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

New lunation 600 / 1553

At 04:04 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 600 of Meeus index or 1553 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.58 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 55 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠210.3°

The true anomaly is ∠210.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠240.4°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 8 July 2048 at 03:10 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 July 2048 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 401 173 km

The Moon is 401 173 km (249 277 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 240 km (224 464 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after descending node on 9 July 2048 at 07:58 in ♊ Gemini. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 July 2048 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Draconic month

15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 8 July 2048 at 12:46 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.746°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.710° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 July 2048 at 09:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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