Lunation 1156 / 2109

The Moon is 2 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1156 of Meeus index or 2109 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.65 days

Length of current 1156 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 31 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2093. It is 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1157 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 47 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 16 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠167.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠167.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 25 June 2093 at 06:06 in ♋ Cancer. 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 8 July 2093 at 18:17 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 404 567 km

Moon is 404 567 km (251 386 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 096 km (221 889 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 25 June 2093 at 19:10 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 July 2093 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 24 June 2093 at 15:06 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.648°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.641° in the next southern standstill on 8 July 2093 at 09:04 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 8 July 2093 at 17:14 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
