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 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces. 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 27 May 2064 at 12:05 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 399 515 km

The Moon is 399 515 km (248 247 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 280 km (226 974 mi).

Moon after ascending node

7 days after ascending node on 8 May 2064 at 10:23 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 May 2064 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 4 May 2064 at 00:57 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.444°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.360° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 May 2064 at 13:54 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day 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.
