Lunation 895 / 1848

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 895 of Meeus index or 1848 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 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 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠285°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠285°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠313.1°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 7 June 2072 at 12:42 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 19 June 2072 at 10:24 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 397 374 km

The Moon is 397 374 km (246 917 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 625 km (227 189 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 8 June 2072 at 10:43 in ♓ Pisces. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 21 June 2072 at 16:43 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

16 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 2 June 2072 at 16:38 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.669°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.692° at the point of next northern standstill on 17 June 2072 at 00:01 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 16 June 2072 at 09:57 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.
