New lunation 505 / 1458

At 18:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 505 of Meeus index or 1458 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.53 days

29 days, 12 hours and 37 minutes is the length of new lunation 505. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 506 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 7 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 2 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠297°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠297°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠323.5°. 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

8 days after point of apogee on 27 October 2040 at 22:34 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 November 2040 at 06:17 in ♑ Capricorn.
