Lunation 1243 / 2196

The Moon is 4 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1243 of Meeus index or 2196 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 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 49 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 20 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠261°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠261°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠294.6°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 1 July 2100 at 09:51 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 16 July 2100 at 14:15 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 371 561 km

The Moon is 371 561 km (230 877 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 737 km (229 123 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♍ Virgo at 12:42 crossing the ecliptic from North to South to meet ascending node 12 days later on 24 July 2100 at 11:05 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 6 July 2100 at 01:14 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.198°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.246° at the point of next southern standstill on 19 July 2100 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 21 July 2100 at 10:12 in ♑ Capricorn 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.
