Today Saturday, 8th of March of 2014, the sun rose in Masqat at 6:20 h and sunset was at 18:11 h. The moon set at 0:07 h at 290º west. Then, the moon rose at 69º northeast at 11:23 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 1:50 h and the next high tide at 15:35 h. The first low tide was at 8:45 h and the next low tide will be at 21:05 h.
The lunar phase is a First Quarter Moon. Today we had 11 hours and 51 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:15 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 44 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 37, 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 34 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 33. The tide heights today are 2.2 m, 1.0 m, 2.0 m and 1.6 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Masqat which is of 2.8 m and a minimum height of 0.2 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Masqat 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 0:07 h to 1:07 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 5:45 h to 7:45 h, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:23 h to 12:23 h, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 18:10 h to 20:10 h, very high activity Major period (moon up). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
Tide timetable for Masqat. The times are generated in local time in Oman. 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 Masqat 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).
