New lunation 822 / 1775

At 19:15 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 822 of Meeus index or 1775 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.64 days

29 days, 15 hours and 19 minutes is the length of new lunation 822. It is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than next lunation 823 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠183.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠183.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠207°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 22 June 2066 at 10:28 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 July 2066 at 20:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 405 042 km

Moon is 405 042 km (251 681 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 676 km (222 250 mi).

Moon in descending node

Moon is in descending node in ♋ Cancer at 09:49 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from North to South. Moon will follow the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet ascending node on 6 July 2066 at 22:56 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 21 June 2066 at 17:22 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.724°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.732° in the next southern standstill on 5 July 2066 at 15:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.
