Lunation 475 / 1428

The Moon is 28 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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

4 days after point of apogee on 26 June 2038 at 12:55 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 11 July 2038 at 19:32 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 394 913 km

Moon is 394 913 km (245 388 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 535 km (228 997 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 18 June 2038 at 02:42 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 2 July 2038 at 12:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 18 June 2038 at 05:58 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.039°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.041° in the next northern standstill on 2 July 2038 at 16:20 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 2 July 2038 at 13:32 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
