Twice in each lunar month, when the sun, moon, and earth are directly aligned, with the moon between the earth and the sun (at new moon) or on the opposite side of the earth from the sun (at full moon), the sun and the moon exert their gravitational force in an additive fashion. Higher high tides and lower low tides are produced. These are called spring tides. At two positions 90 degrees in between, the gravitational forces of the moon and sun tend to counteract each other. These are called neap tides.
