Lunation 1032 / 1985

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1032 of Meeus index or 1985 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 1032 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 17 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 1033 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 33 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 30 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠203.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠203.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠232°. 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 apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 12 June 2083 at 22:19 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 28 June 2083 at 06:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 393 397 km

Moon is 393 397 km (244 446 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 069 km (223 737 mi).

Moon before descending node

14 days after its ascending node on 4 June 2083 at 11:34 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 19 June 2083 at 01:15 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

14 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is moving from the first to the middle part of it.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 15 June 2083 at 05:35 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.886°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.916° in the next southern standstill on 28 June 2083 at 15:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 29 June 2083 at 16:51 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
