Lunation 809 / 1762

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 809 of Meeus index or 1762 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.59 days

Length of current 809 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than next lunation 810 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 27 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 36 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠206.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠206.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠235.9°. 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 after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 1 June 2065 at 09:08 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 June 2065 at 20:01 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 273 km

Moon is 395 273 km (245 611 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 552 km (224 037 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 24 May 2065 at 02:55 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 June 2065 at 16:41 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 4 June 2065 at 16:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.155°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.172° in the next southern standstill on 17 June 2065 at 22:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 18 June 2065 at 09:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
