Today Saturday, 5th of September of 2015, the sun rose in Pulau Pinang at 7:11 h and sunset was at 19:23 h. The moon rose in the east (74º) at 0:24 h and set in the west (287º) at 13:04 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 4:20 h and the next high tide at 16:45 h. The first low tide was at 11:00 h and the next low tide will be at 22:55 h.
The lunar phase is a Last Quarter Moon. Today we had 12 hours and 12 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 13:17 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 40 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 49, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 45 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 44. The tide heights today are 2.2 m, 1.1 m, 1.8 m and 1.2 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Pulau Pinang which is of 2.8 m and a minimum height of 0.3 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Pulau Pinang tells us that today is an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 0:24 h to 1:24 h, average activity minor period (moonrise)
from 6:44 h to 8:44 h, high activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 13:04 h to 14:04 h, average activity minor period (moonset)
from 19:11 h to 21:11 h, high activity Major period (moon down). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
Tide timetable for Pulau Pinang. The times are generated in local time in Malaysia. 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 Pulau Pinang 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).
