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 747 / 1700

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 747 of Meeus index or 1700 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.36 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 17 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠31.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠54.1°.

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 27 May 2060 at 20:38 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 June 2060 at 19:26 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 376 806 km

The Moon is 376 806 km (234 136 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 799 km (251 530 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 27 May 2060 at 15:43 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 June 2060 at 08:48 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 15:36 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠27.668°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-27.634° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 15 June 2060 at 02:38.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 13 days

In 13 days on 14 June 2060 at 03:37 in ♐ Sagittarius the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
