Lunation 434 / 1387

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 434 of Meeus index or 1387 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 434 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 435 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠255.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠255.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠291.6°. 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 apogee

8 days after point of perigee on 18 February 2035 at 05:31 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 March 2035 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 398 198 km

Moon is 398 198 km (247 429 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 374 km (251 266 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 23 February 2035 at 04:20 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 March 2035 at 15:01 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 18 February 2035 at 04:16 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.402°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in the next southern standstill on 4 March 2035 at 01:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 9 March 2035 at 23:09 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
