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 1131 of Meeus index or 2084 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.48 days

Length of current 1131 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than next lunation 1132 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠245.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠245.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.5°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 11 June 2091 at 19:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 June 2091 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 369 716 km

Moon is 369 716 km (229 731 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 857 km (227 954 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♍ Virgo at 07:10 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days to meet descending node on 5 July 2091 at 03:56 in ♓ Pisces.

New draconic month

At 07:10 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 17 June 2091 at 21:16 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.975°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.969° in the next southern standstill on 30 June 2091 at 20:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.
