The point of an orbit, as of the moon or a planet, at which it is in conjunction or opposition; -- commonly used in the plural.
From the Latin, yoked together; refers to points at which a planet conjuncts or opposes the Sun; usually used in reference to those Sun/Moon conjunctions and oppositions that are eclipse events.
An alignment of three celestial bodies. Sometimes applied more specifically to an alignment of the sun, earth, and moon.
Syzygy occurs when the moon (or a planet) is in opposition or conjuction with the Earth and Sun; the three bodies are positioned in a straight line. At syzygy, the moon (or planet) is seen as new or full (from Earth).
The points in the moon's orbit about the earth at which the moon is new or full. Glossary T
Occurs twice a month, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction (lined up on the same side of Earth at the new Moon) and when they are in opposition (on opposite sides of Earth at the full Moon, though usually not so directly in line as to produce an eclipse). In either case, the gravitational effects of the Sun and the Moon reinforce each other, and tidal range is increased.
the straight line configuration of 3 celestial bodies (as the sun and earth and moon) in a gravitational system
The alignment of any three celestial bodies. Planets are at syzygy when they are at opposition or conjunction (aligned with Sun and Earth).
The two points in the moon's orbit when the moon is in conjunction or opposition to the sun relative to the earth; time of new moon or full moon in the cycle of phases.
The nearly straight line configuration of three celestial.
