At 08:24 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 955 of Meeus index or 1908 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.37 days

29 days, 8 hours and 56 minutes is the length of new lunation 955. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2077. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 956 length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠28°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 23 March 2077 at 17:12 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 5 April 2077 at 09:27 in ♍ Virgo.
