Lunation 1129 / 2082

The Moon is 5 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1129 of Meeus index or 2082 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 1129 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1130 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠189.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠189.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.7°. 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 after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 17 April 2091 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 May 2091 at 14:03 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 387 771 km

Moon is 387 771 km (240 950 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 8 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 058 km (222 487 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 14 April 2091 at 19:58 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 April 2091 at 04:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

22 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 07:29 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.701°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.782° in its southern standstill point on 6 May 2091 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 3 May 2091 at 09:46 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
