New lunation 852 / 1805

At 21:42 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 852 of Meeus index or 1805 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.67 days

29 days, 16 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 852. It is 2 hours and 10 minutes longer than next lunation 853 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠241.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠241.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠279.4°. 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 19 November 2068 at 19:10 in ♍ Virgo. 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 5 December 2068 at 19:40 in ♈ Aries.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 396 760 km

Moon is 396 760 km (246 535 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 315 km (227 618 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 11 November 2068 at 15:07 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.651°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.658° in the next southern standstill on 26 November 2068 at 02:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.
