Lunation 994 / 1947

The Moon is 18 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 994 of Meeus index or 1947 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 994 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 4 minutes longer than next lunation 995 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠323.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠323.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠341.5°. 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 apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 12:37, this is 15 days after last perigee on 21 May 2080 at 17:58 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2080 at 21:12 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 28 May 2080 at 17:05 in ♎ Libra, 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 12 June 2080 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days after previous South standstill on 4 June 2080 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.386°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.379° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2080 at 01:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 17 June 2080 at 18:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
