The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 475 of Meeus index or 1428 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.55 days

Length of current 475 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours longer than next lunation 476 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 24 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 39 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠226°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠226°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠259.5°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 29 May 2038 at 20:16 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 392 883 km

Moon is 392 883 km (244 126 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 752 km (226 025 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 21 May 2038 at 17:34 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 June 2038 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

26 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 21 May 2038 at 19:28 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.982°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.031° in the next northern standstill on 5 June 2038 at 09:24 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 17 June 2038 at 02:30 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
