New lunation 880 / 1833

At 00:31 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 880 of Meeus index or 1833 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.61 days

29 days, 14 hours and 32 minutes is the length of new lunation 880. It is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than next lunation 881 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠248.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠248.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠284.2°. 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

5 days after point of apogee on 24 February 2071 at 13:58 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 March 2071 at 10:31 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 391 357 km

Moon is 391 357 km (243 178 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 9 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 245 km (228 195 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 17 February 2071 at 12:08 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 4 March 2071 at 00:24 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 23 February 2071 at 23:25 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.262°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.201° in the next northern standstill on 9 March 2071 at 22:59 in ♊ Gemini.
