Lunation 558 / 1511

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 558 of Meeus index or 1511 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.73 days

Length of current 558 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 24 minutes. It is 3 hours and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 559 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠207.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠207.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠238.6°. 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 perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 1 March 2045 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 March 2045 at 18:23 in ♑ Capricorn.

3 days after its descending node on 2 March 2045 at 13:33 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 March 2045 at 12:51 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 26 February 2045 at 01:04 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.188°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.164° in the next southern standstill on 10 March 2045 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 18 March 2045 at 17:15 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
