New lunation 684 / 1637

At 23:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 684 of Meeus index or 1637 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.57 days

29 days, 13 hours and 40 minutes is the length of new lunation 684. It is 2 hours and 22 minutes longer than next lunation 685 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠221.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠221.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠254.3°. 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

4 days after point of apogee on 23 April 2055 at 01:56 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 May 2055 at 21:10 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 397 779 km

Moon is 397 779 km (247 168 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 012 km (225 565 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 20 April 2055 at 05:33 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 May 2055 at 12:19 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 17 April 2055 at 06:08 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.056°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.193° in the next northern standstill on 1 May 2055 at 22:10 in ♋ Cancer.
