Lunation 487 / 1440

The Moon is 24 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 487 of Meeus index or 1440 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.65 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 10 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 2 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 4 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠176.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠199.2°.

Moon before perigee

8 days after point of perigee on 6 June 2039 at 12:01 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 June 2039 at 15:56 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 396 616 km

The Moon is 396 616 km (246 446 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 283 km (252 453 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 7 June 2039 at 04:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 June 2039 at 00:51 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 8 June 2039 at 11:24 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.703°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.701° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 June 2039 at 16:02 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 21 June 2039 at 17:21 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.
