New lunation 422 / 1375

At 23:10 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 422 of Meeus index or 1375 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.46 days

29 days, 11 hours and 4 minutes is the length of new lunation 422. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes longer than next lunation 423 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠317.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.6°. 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 9 February 2034 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra. 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 21 February 2034 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 371 463 km

Moon is 371 463 km (230 816 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 926 km (226 755 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 7 February 2034 at 08:04 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 February 2034 at 05:47 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 14 February 2034 at 10:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.256°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.195° in the next northern standstill on 27 February 2034 at 06:42 in ♊ Gemini.
