Lunation 735 / 1688

The Moon is 19 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 735 of Meeus index or 1688 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 735 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 736 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 43 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 27 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠84.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠84.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.3°. 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 perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 00:49, this is 11 days after last apogee on 17 June 2059 at 01:27 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 14 July 2059 at 18:59 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 366 101 km

This perigee Moon is 366 101 km (227 485 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 593 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 255 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 22 June 2059 at 23:01 in ♏ Scorpio, 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 5 July 2059 at 17:49 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

20 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 26 June 2059 at 01:24 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.615°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.603° in the next northern standstill on 9 July 2059 at 00:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 9 July 2059 at 17:58 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
