Lunation 400 / 1353

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 400 of Meeus index or 1353 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 400 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter than next lunation 401 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠73.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠73.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠108.4°. 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 before apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 29 May 2032 at 02:49 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 26 May 2032 at 06:23 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.672°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.688° in the next northern standstill on 8 June 2032 at 07:17 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 8 June 2032 at 01:32 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
