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 1154 / 2107

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 1154 of Meeus index or 2107 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.58 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠109.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠109.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠142°.

Moon before perigee

9 days after point of perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 May 2093 at 21:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 389 695 km

The Moon is 389 695 km (242 145 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 700 km (252 090 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 15 May 2093 at 15:06 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 May 2093 at 14:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 14 May 2093 at 12:06 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.516°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.600° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 May 2093 at 08:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 25 May 2093 at 06:07 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.
