Today Wednesday, 5th of August of 2015, the sun rose in Melbourne at 7:17 am and sunset will be at 5:36 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 10:08 am at 276º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (81º) at 11:15 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 12:05 am and the next low tide will be at 12:10 pm. The first high tide was at 6:00 am and the next high tide will be at 6:30 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we have 10 hours and 19 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:26 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 53 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 76, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 70 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 64. The tide heights today are 0.2 m, 0.8 m, 0.2 m and 0.9 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Melbourne which is of 1.0 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Melbourne 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 4:07 am to 6:07 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 10:08 am to 11:08 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 4:41 pm to 6:41 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:15 pm to 12:15 am, high activity minor period (moonrise)
Tide timetable for Melbourne. 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 Melbourne 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).
