New lunation 314 / 1267

At 03:02 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 314 of Meeus index or 1267 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.31 days

29 days, 7 hours and 29 minutes is the length of new lunation 314. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2025. It is 1 hour and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 315 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠17.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠17.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠36.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 26 May 2025 at 01:37 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 June 2025 at 10:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 366 613 km

Moon is 366 613 km (227 803 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 553 km (251 999 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 22 May 2025 at 08:05 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 June 2025 at 01:33 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 15 May 2025 at 18:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.484°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.442° in the next northern standstill on 28 May 2025 at 16:16 in ♊ Gemini.
