Moderate tide

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 795 / 1748

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 795 of Meeus index or 1748 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.62 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 53 minutes. It is 2 hours and 27 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 2 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 54 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠206.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠206.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠235.2°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 29 April 2064 at 13:49 in ♎ Libra. 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 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 382 482 km

The Moon is 382 482 km (237 663 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 314 km (251 850 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 25 April 2064 at 16:11 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 May 2064 at 10:23 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

23 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 00:57 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.444°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.360° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 18 May 2064 at 13:54.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 16 May 2064 at 09:55 in ♉ Taurus 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.
