Lunation 776 / 1729

The Moon is 20 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 776 of Meeus index or 1729 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 776 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 43 minutes. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes shorter than next lunation 777 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠54.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠54.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠86.4°. 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

12 days after point of apogee on 11 October 2062 at 03:14 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 October 2062 at 12:04 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 364 700 km

Moon is 364 700 km (226 614 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 991 km (229 902 mi).

7 days after its ascending node on 15 October 2062 at 19:12 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 28 October 2062 at 19:18 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 22 October 2062 at 22:10 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.544°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.465° in the next southern standstill on 5 November 2062 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 1 November 2062 at 07:32 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
