New lunation 142 / 1095

At 08:54 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 142 of Meeus index or 1095 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.41 days

29 days, 9 hours and 46 minutes is the length of new lunation 142. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 143 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 58 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 11 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠283.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠283.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠312.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 24 June 2011 at 04:13 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 July 2011 at 14:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 383 302 km

Moon is 383 302 km (238 173 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 566 km (229 638 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 30 June 2011 at 04:14 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 July 2011 at 02:27 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 29 June 2011 at 17:46 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.399°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.383° in the next southern standstill on 12 July 2011 at 16:51 in ♐ Sagittarius.
