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 1227 / 2180

The Moon is 21 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1227 of Meeus index or 2180 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.7 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠199.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠199.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠227.5°.

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 4 April 2099 at 03:23 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 April 2099 at 08:34 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 393 238 km

The Moon is 393 238 km (244 347 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 586 km (252 019 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 4 April 2099 at 16:08 in ♍ Virgo. 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 18 April 2099 at 13:19 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 10 April 2099 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.656°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.599° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 April 2099 at 08:16 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 20 April 2099 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries 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.
