Lunation 1242 / 2195

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 1242 of Meeus index or 2195 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 1242 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 35 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1243 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

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

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠227.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠227.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠261°. 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

6 days after point of apogee on 3 June 2100 at 17:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 June 2100 at 12:17 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 387 648 km

Moon is 387 648 km (240 873 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 024 km (226 194 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 31 May 2100 at 02:55 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 14 June 2100 at 11:14 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 8 June 2100 at 18:51 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.177°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.185° in the next southern standstill on 21 June 2100 at 19:11 in ♐ Sagittarius.
