Moderate tide

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 1152 / 2105

The Moon is 8 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1152 of Meeus index or 2105 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 12 minutes. It is 42 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 32 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 37 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠43.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠43.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠73.1°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 14:56. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 22 February 2093 at 20:31 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 21 March 2093 at 10:04 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 404 492 km

This apogee Moon is 404 492 km (251 340 mi) away from Earth. It is 916 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 217 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

11 days after descending node on 23 February 2093 at 08:08 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 9 March 2093 at 06:15 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 21 February 2093 at 17:26 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.882°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠20.943° at the point of next northern standstill on 7 March 2093 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
