New lunation 661 / 1614

At 10:51 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 661 of Meeus index or 1614 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.27 days

29 days, 6 hours and 35 minutes is the length of new lunation 661. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2053. It is 40 minutes shorter than next lunation 662 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 9 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month and it is the shortest synodic month length of a for 21st century.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠352.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠352.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠7.2°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:48, this is 12 days after last apogee on 3 June 2053 at 22:38 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 1 July 2053 at 02:40 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 357 537 km

This perigee Moon is 357 537 km (222 163 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 971 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 819 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 9 June 2053 at 18:30 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 June 2053 at 05:29 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon in northern standstill

At 21:27 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.495°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.513° in its southern standstill point on 30 June 2053 at 12:07 in ♑ Capricorn.
