Neap tide

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 1230 / 2183

The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1230 of Meeus index or 2183 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes. It is 57 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 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠294.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠320.2°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 8 July 2099 at 15:42 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 20 July 2099 at 12:45 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 403 457 km

The Moon is 403 457 km (250 697 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 045 km (226 207 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 8 July 2099 at 23:54 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 22 July 2099 at 07:44 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 1 July 2099 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.409°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.454° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 July 2099 at 05:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 18 July 2099 at 01:01 in ♋ Cancer 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.
