At 01:18 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 676 of Meeus index or 1629 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.35 days

29 days, 8 hours and 31 minutes is the length of new lunation 676. It is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 677 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.7°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 1 September 2054 at 14:49 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 14 September 2054 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius.
