Lunation 808 / 1761

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 808 of Meeus index or 1761 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 808 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 34 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than next lunation 809 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 50 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 13 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠183°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.9°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 09:08, this is 12 days after last perigee on 19 May 2065 at 12:57 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2065 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 21 May 2065 at 12:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.190°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.155° in the next northern standstill on 4 June 2065 at 16:59 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 4 June 2065 at 03:05 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
