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 994 / 1947

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 994 of Meeus index or 1947 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠323.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠323.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠341.5°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 12:37. It is 15 days after previous perigee on 21 May 2080 at 17:58 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next perigee on 18 June 2080 at 21:12 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 405 518 km

This apogee Moon is 405 518 km (251 977 mi) away from Earth. It is 110 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 191 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 28 May 2080 at 17:05 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 June 2080 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 4 June 2080 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.386°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.379° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 June 2080 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 17 June 2080 at 18:40 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.
