Lunation 411 / 1364

The Moon is 27 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 411 of Meeus index or 1364 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 55 minutes. It is 5 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠8.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠8.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠25.1°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 14:44. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 12 April 2033 at 02:26 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 9 May 2033 at 16:25 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 360 572 km

This perigee Moon is 360 572 km (224 049 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 936 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 784 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♈ Aries at 21:57 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 14 days later on 11 May 2033 at 17:56 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

13 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the middle to the last part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 19 April 2033 at 14:20 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.596°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.619° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 May 2033 at 06:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 29 April 2033 at 02:46 in ♉ Taurus 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.
