Lunation 847 / 1800

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 847 of Meeus index or 1800 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 847 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 848 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 ∠99.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠99.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠133.3°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 5 July 2068 at 16:27 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 17 July 2068 at 14:05 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 394 008 km

Moon is 394 008 km (244 825 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 871 km (226 099 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 26 June 2068 at 20:13 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 July 2068 at 06:33 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 28 June 2068 at 02:09 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.448°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.401° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2068 at 14:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 15 July 2068 at 02:07 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
