The Moon is 7 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1043 of Meeus index or 1996 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 1043 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 41 minutes. It is 44 minutes shorter than next lunation 1044 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 57 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 6 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠128.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠128.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠157°. 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

3 days after point of apogee on 9 May 2084 at 08:15 in ♋ Cancer. 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 21 May 2084 at 12:03 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 399 873 km

Moon is 399 873 km (248 470 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 060 km (223 731 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 10 May 2084 at 08:57 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 May 2084 at 12:47 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 7 May 2084 at 17:28 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.673°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.645° in the next southern standstill on 21 May 2084 at 11:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 20 May 2084 at 02:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
