Lunation 721 / 1674

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 721 of Meeus index or 1674 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 721 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 722 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠82.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠118.2°. 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 before perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 29 April 2058 at 19:18 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 May 2058 at 17:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 385 381 km

Moon is 385 381 km (239 465 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 328 km (227 626 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 26 April 2058 at 05:25 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 10 May 2058 at 07:50 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 28 April 2058 at 07:29 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.222°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.271° in the next southern standstill on 12 May 2058 at 02:24 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 8 May 2058 at 10:12 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
