Lunation 725 / 1678

The Moon is 15 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 725 of Meeus index or 1678 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 725 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 14 minutes. It is 27 minutes longer than next lunation 726 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠196°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠196°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠223°. 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 1 September 2058 at 14:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 13 September 2058 at 22:43 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 368 124 km

Moon is 368 124 km (228 742 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 674 km (252 074 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 27 August 2058 at 14:29 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 9 September 2058 at 03:37 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 29 August 2058 at 15:55 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.493°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.586° in the next northern standstill on 11 September 2058 at 14:56 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 17 September 2058 at 22:17 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
