Today Thursday, 23th of May of 2013, the sun rose in Oban at 4:51 h and sunset was at 21:46 h. The moon set at 3:54 h at 244º southwest. Then, the moon rose at 121º southeast at 19:44 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 4:45 h and the next high tide at 17:20 h. The first low tide was at 11:25 h and the next low tide will be at 23:35 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we had 16 hours and 55 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 13:19 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 8 hours and 10 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 92. 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 96 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 100. The tide heights today are 3.7 m, 0.9 m, 3.8 m and 0.7 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Oban which is of 4.7 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Oban 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 3:54 h to 4:54 h, average activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 11:49 h to 13:49 h, high activity Major period (moon down)
from 19:44 h to 20:44 h, average activity minor period (moonrise)
Tide timetable for Oban. The times are generated in local time in Scotland 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 Oban 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).
