Lunation 649 / 1602

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 649 of Meeus index or 1602 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 649 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 650 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠23.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠23.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠43°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:41, this is 12 days after last perigee on 25 June 2052 at 08:22 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 July 2052 at 08:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 405 232 km

This apogee Moon is 405 232 km (251 799 mi) away from Earth. It is 176 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 477 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

3 days after its ascending node on 3 July 2052 at 14:53 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 July 2052 at 23:36 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 26 June 2052 at 04:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.498°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.479° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2052 at 04:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 12 July 2052 at 00:23 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
