At 17:00 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 963 of Meeus index or 1916 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.71 days

29 days, 17 hours and 6 minutes is the length of new lunation 963. It is 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than next lunation 964 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 22 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 41 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠222.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠222.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.6°. 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

4 days after point of apogee on 11 November 2077 at 17:19 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 27 November 2077 at 16:38 in ♈ Aries.
