New lunation 897 / 1850

At 17:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 897 of Meeus index or 1850 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.31 days

29 days, 7 hours and 25 minutes is the length of new lunation 897. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2072. It is 21 minutes shorter than next lunation 898 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 19 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 50 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠333.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠333.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠350.4°. 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 before perigee

10 days after point of apogee on 5 July 2072 at 05:53 in ♓ Pisces. 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 17 July 2072 at 07:53 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 368 739 km

Moon is 368 739 km (229 124 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 898 km (224 252 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 5 July 2072 at 13:03 in ♓ Pisces, 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 18 July 2072 at 20:41 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 14 July 2072 at 10:48 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.668°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.639° in the next southern standstill on 27 July 2072 at 08:30 in ♑ Capricorn.
