New lunation 574 / 1527

At 15:22 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 574 of Meeus index or 1527 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.43 days

29 days, 10 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 574. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 575 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠274°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠274°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠304.9°. 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 before perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 25 June 2046 at 16:40 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 July 2046 at 18:06 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 379 985 km

Moon is 379 985 km (236 112 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 114 km (228 114 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 21 June 2046 at 10:29 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 July 2046 at 15:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 2 July 2046 at 13:24 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.701°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.722° in the next southern standstill on 15 July 2046 at 09:24 in ♐ Sagittarius.
