Lunation 447 / 1400

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 447 of Meeus index or 1400 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 447 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 57 minutes. It is 3 hours and 21 minutes longer than next lunation 448 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠223.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠223.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.5°. 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

13 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2036 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2036 at 02:38 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 363 877 km

Moon is 363 877 km (226 103 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 380 km (225 794 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 26 February 2036 at 05:24 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 March 2036 at 13:58 in ♌ Leo.

Moon in northern standstill

At 07:25 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠19.281°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-19.336° in its southern standstill point on 20 March 2036 at 12:11 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 12 March 2036 at 09:09 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
