New lunation 969 / 1922

At 17:56 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 969 of Meeus index or 1922 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.33 days

29 days, 7 hours and 53 minutes is the length of new lunation 969. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2078. It is 26 minutes shorter than next lunation 970 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 18 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠11.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠11.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠29°. 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 8 June 2078 at 07:36 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 June 2078 at 07:41 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 366 957 km

Moon is 366 957 km (228 017 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 10 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 887 km (251 585 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 8 June 2078 at 00:37 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 June 2078 at 16:55 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 29 May 2078 at 11:05 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.084°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.059° in the next northern standstill on 11 June 2078 at 07:53 in ♋ Cancer.
