The Moon is 26 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1115 of Meeus index or 2068 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 1115 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 38 minutes longer than next lunation 1116 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠188.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠188.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.3°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 18:35, this is 12 days after last perigee on 15 March 2090 at 05:23 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 16 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 12 April 2090 at 12:39 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 406 032 km

This apogee Moon is 406 032 km (252 297 mi) away from Earth. It is 624 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 677 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 16 March 2090 at 06:10 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 30 March 2090 at 05:59 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 22 March 2090 at 18:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.136°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.167° in the next northern standstill on 6 April 2090 at 10:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 31 March 2090 at 03:48 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
