Lunation 359 / 1312

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 359 of Meeus index or 1312 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.71 days

Length of current 359 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 7 minutes. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 360 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠99.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠99.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠136.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 1 February 2029 at 12:21 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 February 2029 at 11:59 in ♈ Aries.

Moon in southern standstill

At 06:14 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-25.127°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠25.019° in its northern standstill point on 22 February 2029 at 22:00 in ♊ Gemini.
