The Moon is 16 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 920 of Meeus index or 1873 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 920 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 921 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 53 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠193.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠218.8°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 8 June 2074 at 10:20 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 368 305 km

Moon is 368 305 km (228 854 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 879 km (252 202 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 30 May 2074 at 19:46 in ♋ Cancer, 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 12 June 2074 at 10:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon in southern standstill

At 21:20 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-20.986°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠21.016° in its northern standstill point on 25 June 2074 at 05:18 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 14 days

After 14 days on 24 June 2074 at 13:38 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
