Lunation 1152 / 2105

The Moon is 10 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1152 of Meeus index or 2105 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 1152 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 12 minutes. It is 42 minutes shorter than next lunation 1153 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠43.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.1°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 6 March 2093 at 14:56 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 21 March 2093 at 10:04 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 074 km

Moon is 404 074 km (251 080 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 821 km (229 796 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 23 February 2093 at 08:08 in ♒ Aquarius, 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 9 March 2093 at 06:15 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 7 March 2093 at 08:10 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.943°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.054° in the next southern standstill on 20 March 2093 at 23:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 13 March 2093 at 04:06 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
