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 1205 of Meeus index or 2158 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 1205 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 44 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2097. It is 18 minutes shorter than next lunation 1206 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 9 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10°. 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 perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2097 at 09:12 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 June 2097 at 09:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 368 189 km

Moon is 368 189 km (228 782 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 338 km (252 487 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 7 June 2097 at 13:23 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 20 June 2097 at 09:05 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 11 June 2097 at 04:55 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.467°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.434° in the next southern standstill on 25 June 2097 at 00:31 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 24 June 2097 at 19:03 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
