Lunation 775 / 1728

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 775 of Meeus index or 1728 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 775 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 776 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.6°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 13 September 2062 at 08:35 in ♑ Capricorn. 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 29 September 2062 at 03:19 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 372 222 km

Moon is 372 222 km (231 288 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 253 km (228 200 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 18 September 2062 at 11:25 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 1 October 2062 at 12:54 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 11 September 2062 at 13:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.670°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.655° in the next northern standstill on 25 September 2062 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 2 October 2062 at 18:49 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
