At 00:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 456 of Meeus index or 1409 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.64 days

29 days, 15 hours and 20 minutes is the length of new lunation 456. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 457 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 27 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠76°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠76°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠113°. 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 before apogee

6 days after point of perigee on 11 November 2036 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 25 November 2036 at 04:24 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 386 515 km

Moon is 386 515 km (240 169 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 313 km (251 228 mi).
