Lunation 437 / 1390

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 437 of Meeus index or 1390 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 437 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 17 minutes. It is 38 minutes longer than next lunation 438 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.2°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 24 May 2035 at 09:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 June 2035 at 11:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 383 247 km

Moon is 383 247 km (238 139 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 357 km (222 051 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 30 May 2035 at 10:00 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 June 2035 at 20:42 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 25 May 2035 at 00:53 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.782°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.820° in the next northern standstill on 7 June 2035 at 10:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 6 June 2035 at 03:21 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
