Lunation 461 / 1414

The Moon is 3 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 461 of Meeus index or 1414 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.57 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 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 3 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠225.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠225.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠258.7°.

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 11 April 2037 at 13:04 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 April 2037 at 09:43 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 387 047 km

The Moon is 387 047 km (240 500 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 607 km (225 935 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 8 April 2037 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 April 2037 at 03:14 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 6 April 2037 at 21:45 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.915°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.064° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 April 2037 at 11:52 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 11 days

In 11 days on 29 April 2037 at 18:54 in ♏ Scorpio 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.
