Lunation 363 / 1316

The Moon is 25 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 363 of Meeus index or 1316 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.59 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 8 minutes. It is 2 hours and 7 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠213.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠213.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠244.2°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 6 June 2029 at 22:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 15 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 405 445 km

The Moon is 405 445 km (251 932 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 15 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 366 596 km (227 792 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 29 May 2029 at 17:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2029 at 04:49 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 28 May 2029 at 14:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.396°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.392° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 June 2029 at 22:05 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 12 June 2029 at 03:51 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
