Lunation 908 / 1861

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 908 of Meeus index or 1861 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 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 1 hour and 19 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠250°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠250°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠284.5°.

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 28 June 2073 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 11 July 2073 at 07:01 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 402 563 km

The Moon is 402 563 km (250 141 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 523 km (229 611 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 23 June 2073 at 19:45 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 8 July 2073 at 01:28 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 20 June 2073 at 11:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.607°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.610° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 July 2073 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 5 July 2073 at 07:16 in ♋ Cancer 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.
