New lunation 870 / 1823

At 11:08 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 870 of Meeus index or 1823 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.3 days

29 days, 7 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 870. It is 26 minutes longer than next lunation 871 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 28 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠350.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠350.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠5.3°. 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 before perigee

12 days after point of apogee on 28 April 2070 at 06:11 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 May 2070 at 01:00 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 363 987 km

Moon is 363 987 km (226 171 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 790 km (222 320 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 8 May 2070 at 19:39 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 May 2070 at 18:54 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 29 April 2070 at 10:16 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.761°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.793° in the next northern standstill on 12 May 2070 at 15:52 in ♊ Gemini.
