New lunation 241 / 1194

At 19:16 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 241 of Meeus index or 1194 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.33 days

29 days, 7 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 241. It is 31 minutes longer than next lunation 242 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 21 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠321.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠321.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠340.5°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 23 June 2019 at 07:50 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 5 July 2019 at 04:54 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 373 088 km

Moon is 373 088 km (231 826 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 729 km (226 011 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 19 June 2019 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2019 at 06:53 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon in northern standstill

At 22:02 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.379°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.375° in its southern standstill point on 15 July 2019 at 22:49 in ♑ Capricorn.
