Today Thursday, 17th of April of 2014, the sun will rise in Geelong at 6:51 am and sunset will be at 5:53 pm. 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 8:31 am at 250º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (111º) at 7:12 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 3:40 am and the next high tide will be at 5:15 pm. The first low tide will be at 10:45 am and the next low tide at 11:25 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 11 hours and 2 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:22 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 19 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 91. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 88 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 84. The tide heights today are 0.8 m, 0.2 m, 0.9 m and 0.4 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Geelong which is of 1.1 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Geelong 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:
Tide timetable for Geelong. The times are generated in local time in Victoria and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. 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 Geelong 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).
