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 1079 / 2032

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1079 of Meeus index or 2032 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.35 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 25 minutes. It is 37 minutes longer 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 4 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 50 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠347.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠347.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠3.2°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 18 April 2087 at 16:59 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 May 2087 at 13:16 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 368 307 km

The Moon is 368 307 km (228 855 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 231 km (221 973 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 20 April 2087 at 05:56 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 May 2087 at 13:34 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

9 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 22 April 2087 at 05:30 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.818°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.806° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 May 2087 at 03:19 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 2 May 2087 at 17:51 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.
