New lunation 954 / 1907

At 23:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 954 of Meeus index or 1907 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.39 days

29 days, 9 hours and 18 minutes is the length of new lunation 954. It is 22 minutes longer than next lunation 955 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.8°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:20, this is 13 days after last apogee on 10 February 2077 at 02:41 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 9 March 2077 at 03:31 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 356 817 km

This perigee Moon is 356 817 km (221 716 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 691 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 539 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

6 days after its descending node on 17 February 2077 at 08:19 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 March 2077 at 17:53 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 19 February 2077 at 06:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.259°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.349° in the next northern standstill on 3 March 2077 at 22:10 in ♋ Cancer.
