New lunation 446 / 1399

At 10:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 446 of Meeus index or 1399 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.78 days

29 days, 18 hours and 42 minutes is the length of new lunation 446. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2036. It is 2 hours and 45 minutes longer than next lunation 447 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 58 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 5 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠195.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠195.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠223.9°. 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 after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 23 February 2036 at 03:15 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 March 2036 at 02:38 in ♌ Leo.
