Lunation 1190 / 2143

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1190 of Meeus index or 2143 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1190 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 49 minutes. It is 57 minutes longer than next lunation 1191 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 55 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 14 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠338.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠338.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠354.8°. 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 perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 25 March 2096 at 15:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 April 2096 at 22:20 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 363 658 km

Moon is 363 658 km (225 967 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 045 km (252 305 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 15 March 2096 at 04:57 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 28 March 2096 at 05:08 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 18 March 2096 at 04:59 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.068°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.167° in the next northern standstill on 30 March 2096 at 20:57 in ♋ Cancer.
