Lunation 1057 / 2010

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1057 of Meeus index or 2010 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 1057 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 1058 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠128.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠128.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠156.8°. 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 before apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2085 at 19:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2085 at 15:24 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 403 852 km

Moon is 403 852 km (250 942 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 402 km (251 905 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 22 June 2085 at 04:11 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 6 July 2085 at 11:16 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 21 June 2085 at 02:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.128°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.123° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2085 at 13:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 7 July 2085 at 10:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
