Neap tide

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 1040 / 1993

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1040 of Meeus index or 1993 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 11 minutes. It is 37 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 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 36 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠58.7°.

Moon before apogee

13 days after point of apogee on 15 February 2084 at 22:33 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 March 2084 at 16:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 536 km

The Moon is 363 536 km (225 891 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 159 km (228 763 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 18 February 2084 at 23:12 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 3 March 2084 at 06:34 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 15:44 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-26.203°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠26.104° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 14 March 2084 at 02:47.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 6 March 2084 at 17:04 in ♓ Pisces 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.
