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 1117 / 2070

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1117 of Meeus index or 2070 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 35 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 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠246°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠246°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠280.8°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 05:49. It is 12 days after previous perigee on 10 May 2090 at 05:31 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 4 June 2090 at 21:08 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 404 185 km

This apogee Moon is 404 185 km (251 149 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 223 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 524 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 9 May 2090 at 23:10 in ♍ Virgo. 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 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

12 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 16 May 2090 at 12:41 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.355°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.414° at the point of next northern standstill on 30 May 2090 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 29 May 2090 at 07:29 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.
