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 1118 / 2071

The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1118 of Meeus index or 2071 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 34 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 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠280.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠280.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠310°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 19 June 2090 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 June 2090 at 23:26 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 391 155 km

The Moon is 391 155 km (243 052 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 238 km (227 570 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 19 June 2090 at 18:49 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2090 at 01:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 12 June 2090 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.449°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.446° at the point of next northern standstill on 27 June 2090 at 08:45 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 27 June 2090 at 17:11 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.
