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 920 / 1873

The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 920 of Meeus index or 1873 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.62 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 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 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠193.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠218.8°.

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 8 June 2074 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 368 305 km

The Moon is 368 305 km (228 854 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 879 km (252 202 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after ascending node on 30 May 2074 at 19:46 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 June 2074 at 10:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 21:20 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-20.986°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠21.016° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 25 June 2074 at 05:18.

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 24 June 2074 at 13:38 in ♊ Gemini 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.
