Lunation 1093 / 2046

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1093 of Meeus index or 2046 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 1093 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 5 minutes. It is 20 minutes longer than next lunation 1094 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 30 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠348.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠348.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠3.5°. 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 perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 5 June 2088 at 01:04 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2088 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 4 June 2088 at 21:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.441°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.431° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2088 at 14:44 in ♊ Gemini.
