New lunation 600 / 1553

At 04:04 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 600 of Meeus index or 1553 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.58 days

29 days, 13 hours and 55 minutes is the length of new lunation 600. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 601 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠210.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠210.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠240.4°. 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

3 days after point of apogee on 8 July 2048 at 03:10 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2048 at 16:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 401 173 km

Moon is 401 173 km (249 277 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 240 km (224 464 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 9 July 2048 at 07:58 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 July 2048 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 8 July 2048 at 12:46 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.746°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.710° in the next southern standstill on 22 July 2048 at 09:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.
