New lunation 585 / 1538

At 04:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 585 of Meeus index or 1538 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.66 days

29 days, 15 hours and 48 minutes is the length of new lunation 585. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than next lunation 586 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 59 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠185.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠210.1°. 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 24 April 2047 at 13:11 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 May 2047 at 02:43 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 405 184 km

Moon is 405 184 km (251 770 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 602 km (222 204 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 16 April 2047 at 14:32 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 May 2047 at 06:05 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 14 April 2047 at 10:31 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.536°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.418° in the next northern standstill on 28 April 2047 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini.
