Lunation 365 / 1318

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 365 of Meeus index or 1318 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.42 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 30 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠279.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠279.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠309.2°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 July 2029 at 11:25 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 368 450 km

The Moon is 368 450 km (228 944 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 666 km (229 700 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 10 July 2029 at 12:33 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 July 2029 at 11:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 9 July 2029 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.399°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.380° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 July 2029 at 07:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 25 July 2029 at 13:36 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
