Lunation 909 / 1862

The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 909 of Meeus index or 1862 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.41 days

Length of current 909 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 48 minutes. It is 59 minutes longer than next lunation 910 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 13 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠284.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠284.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠313.1°. 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 perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 07:01, this is 13 days after last apogee on 28 June 2073 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries. 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 25 July 2073 at 19:45 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 369 523 km

This perigee Moon is 369 523 km (229 611 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2073. It is 7 015 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 833 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 8 July 2073 at 01:28 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 July 2073 at 02:27 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 4 July 2073 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.610°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.591° in the next southern standstill on 17 July 2073 at 20:15 in ♑ Capricorn.
