New lunation 756 / 1709

At 05:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 756 of Meeus index or 1709 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.49 days

29 days, 11 hours and 52 minutes is the length of new lunation 756. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 757 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 52 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠299.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠299.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠324.8°. 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 12 February 2061 at 05:47 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 24 February 2061 at 09:19 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 378 129 km

Moon is 378 129 km (234 958 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 440 km (228 938 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 9 February 2061 at 17:58 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 February 2061 at 16:18 in ♈ Aries.
