The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 364 of Meeus index or 1317 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 364 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes longer than next lunation 365 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 26 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠244.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠244.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠279.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 374 298 km

Moon is 374 298 km (232 578 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 596 km (227 792 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2029 at 03:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2029 at 22:05 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.392°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.401° in the next southern standstill on 24 June 2029 at 23:29 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 26 June 2029 at 03:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
