Lunation 797 / 1750

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 797 of Meeus index or 1750 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 797 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 798 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠269.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠269.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠301.5°. 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 before perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 6 July 2064 at 04:32 in ♈ Aries. 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 18 July 2064 at 08:38 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 387 413 km

Moon is 387 413 km (240 727 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 671 km (228 460 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 1 July 2064 at 18:41 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 July 2064 at 00:17 in ♌ Leo.

Moon in northern standstill

At 04:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.364°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.393° in its southern standstill point on 25 July 2064 at 00:49 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 14 July 2064 at 08:46 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
