Lunation 440 / 1393

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 440 of Meeus index or 1393 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 440 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 441 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠25.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠25.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠46.4°. 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 perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 14 August 2035 at 06:09 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 August 2035 at 02:28 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 380 892 km

Moon is 380 892 km (236 675 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 533 km (227 132 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 19 August 2035 at 19:18 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 September 2035 at 19:14 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 14 August 2035 at 22:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.761°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.744° in the next northern standstill on 28 August 2035 at 17:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 2 September 2035 at 01:59 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
