Lunation 884 / 1837

The Moon is 1 day young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 884 of Meeus index or 1837 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 884 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2071. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 885 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠350.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 08:00, this is 12 days after last apogee on 15 June 2071 at 11:49 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 12 July 2071 at 16:49 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 750 km

This perigee Moon is 357 750 km (222 296 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 758 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 606 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 21 June 2071 at 02:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2071 at 14:17 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

21 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 27 June 2071 at 07:57 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.410°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.403° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2071 at 15:45 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 13 days

After 13 days on 12 July 2071 at 08:25 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
