At 11:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 707 of Meeus index or 1660 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.59 days

29 days, 14 hours and 7 minutes is the length of new lunation 707. It is 54 minutes shorter than next lunation 708 length.

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 23 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 40 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠80°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠80°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠117°. 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

6 days after point of perigee on 26 February 2057 at 15:47 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 12 March 2057 at 10:58 in ♊ Gemini.
