Lunation 512 / 1465

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 512 of Meeus index or 1465 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 512 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 513 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 23 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 46 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠88.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠88.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123.4°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 13:34, this is 14 days after last perigee on 22 May 2041 at 01:18 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 11 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 17 June 2041 at 11:48 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 404 429 km

This apogee Moon is 404 429 km (251 301 mi) away from Earth. It is 979 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 280 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 28 May 2041 at 04:17 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 11 June 2041 at 14:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 1 June 2041 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.334°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.308° in the next southern standstill on 15 June 2041 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
