Today Friday, 24th of May of 2013, the sun will rise in East London at 6:58 h and sunset will be at 17:12 h. Today we begin the day with the moon already visible in the sky, so first we will see the moonset, which will take place at 5:53 h at 249º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (112º) at 16:44 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide will be at 3:05 h and the next high tide at 15:30 h. The first low tide will be at 9:15 h and the next low tide at 21:30 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 10 hours and 14 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:05 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 9 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 100. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 101 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 101. The tide heights today are 1.9 m, 0.1 m, 1.8 m and 0.1 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for East London which is of 2.1 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in East London tells us that today is a good day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 5:53 h to 6:53 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 11:18 h to 13:18 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 16:44 h to 17:44 h, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 23:52 h to 1:52 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for East London. The times are generated in local time in South Africa. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for East London are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
