Today Tuesday, 26th of May of 2015, the sun rose in Homer (Kachemak Bay) at 5:07 am and sunset will be at 10:58 pm. The moon set at 4:15 am at 279º west. Then, the moon rose at 85º east at 3:46 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 3:43 am and the next low tide at 3:51 pm. The first high tide was at 9:39 am and the next high tide will be at 10:36 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we have 17 hours and 51 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 2:03 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 29 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 43, 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 increases to 45 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 47. The tide heights today are 5.6 ft, 12.5 ft, 3.9 ft and 14.4 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Homer (Kachemak Bay) which is of 23.3 ft and a minimum height of -5.6 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Homer (Kachemak Bay) 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 4:15 am to 5:15 am, high activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 3:46 pm to 4:46 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 10:08 pm to 12:08 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Homer (Kachemak Bay). The times are generated in local time in Southcentral Alaska 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 Homer (Kachemak Bay) 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 feet 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).
