Lunation 1082 / 2035

The Moon is 9 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1082 of Meeus index or 2035 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1082 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes shorter than next lunation 1083 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠37.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠37.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠62.7°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 22:18, this is 11 days after last perigee on 28 June 2087 at 01:08 in ♊ Gemini. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 25 July 2087 at 08:02 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 404 488 km

This apogee Moon is 404 488 km (251 337 mi) away from Earth. It is 920 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 221 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 27 June 2087 at 08:36 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 10 July 2087 at 23:01 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 29 June 2087 at 00:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.796°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.759° in the next southern standstill on 13 July 2087 at 01:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 15 July 2087 at 19:54 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
