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 562 of Meeus index or 1515 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.31 days

Length of current 562 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 24 minutes. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 563 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠328°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠328°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠345.4°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 2 July 2045 at 18:04 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 July 2045 at 07:12 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 28 June 2045 at 04:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.699°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.744° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2045 at 12:55 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 14 July 2045 at 10:28 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
