The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:23, this is 11 days after last perigee on 1 March 2045 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 29 March 2045 at 17:25 in ♌ Leo.

10 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 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 March 2045 at 12:51 in ♓ Pisces.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 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.
