Lunation 616 / 1569

The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 616 of Meeus index or 1569 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 616 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 5 minutes longer than next lunation 617 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 37 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 26 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠278.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠278.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠310.2°. 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 16 November 2049 at 15:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 November 2049 at 11:08 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 403 540 km

Moon is 403 540 km (250 748 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 491 km (227 727 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 10 November 2049 at 14:33 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 November 2049 at 00:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 12 November 2049 at 00:36 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.270°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.274° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2049 at 06:55 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 25 November 2049 at 05:35 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
