New lunation 319 / 1272

At 12:25 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 319 of Meeus index or 1272 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.77 days

29 days, 18 hours and 22 minutes is the length of new lunation 319. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 320 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 38 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 25 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠156.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠156.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠181.4°. 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 apogee

13 days after point of perigee on 5 November 2025 at 22:29 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 November 2025 at 02:48 in ♏ Scorpio.
