Cosmic cycles of the moon – the synodic cycle

In this third part of our cosmic cycles of the moon saga, we will explore the synodic cycle. It is a 29.5 days cycle, which defines the length of time between a phase of the moon and its return to the same phase: for instance from a full moon to the next full moon (entirely visible moon), or from a new moon to the next new moon (invisible moon).

This cycle is calculated from the position of the sun in relation to the moon’s, from the Earth observant’s point of view.
