Lunation 958 / 1911

The Moon is 12 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 958 of Meeus index or 1911 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.49 days

Length of current 958 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 46 minutes. It is 1 hour and 51 minutes shorter than next lunation 959 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠80.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠80.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠115.1°. 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

5 days after point of apogee on 27 June 2077 at 13:19 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 July 2077 at 14:18 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 389 302 km

Moon is 389 302 km (241 901 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 710 km (227 863 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2077 at 07:13 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.810°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.808° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2077 at 16:53 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 6 July 2077 at 01:22 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
