Lunation 1192 / 2145

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1192 of Meeus index or 2145 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 1192 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2096. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1193 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.7°. 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 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 18 June 2096 at 18:27 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 125 km

Moon is 405 125 km (251 733 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 025 km (224 331 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 24 May 2096 at 13:59 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.358°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.345° in the next southern standstill on 8 June 2096 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 6 June 2096 at 02:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
