Lunation 648 / 1601

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 648 of Meeus index or 1601 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 648 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2052. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 649 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 28 May 2052 at 00:39 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 10 June 2052 at 00:46 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 376 289 km

Moon is 376 289 km (233 815 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 066 km (252 318 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 24 May 2052 at 19:07 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 June 2052 at 13:15 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 29 May 2052 at 16:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.475°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.514° in the next southern standstill on 12 June 2052 at 20:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 12 June 2052 at 10:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
