The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 554 of Meeus index or 1507 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 554 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 21 minutes. It is 2 hours and 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 555 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠90.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠90.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠126.5°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 27 October 2044 at 11:18 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 8 November 2044 at 06:14 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 316 km

Moon is 397 316 km (246 881 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 997 km (226 799 mi).

New draconic month

At 17:08 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2044 at 15:51 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.259°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.171° in the next northern standstill on 8 November 2044 at 11:13 in ♊ Gemini.
