Lunation 748 / 1701

The Moon is 11 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 748 of Meeus index or 1701 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 748 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 52 minutes. It is 2 hours and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 749 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠54.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠54.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠84.5°. 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 apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 6 July 2060 at 13:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 20 July 2060 at 04:58 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 434 km

Moon is 398 434 km (247 575 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 731 km (229 740 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 7 July 2060 at 12:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 July 2060 at 22:57 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

16 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 28 June 2060 at 00:46 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.624°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.639° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2060 at 09:29 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 13 July 2060 at 15:08 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
