Lunation 987 / 1940

The Moon is 13 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the first to the middle part of current synodic month. This is lunation 987 of Meeus index or 1940 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.72 days

Length of current 987 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 988 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 26 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠116.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠116.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠148.4°. 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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 29 October 2079 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 November 2079 at 21:38 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 375 869 km

Moon is 375 869 km (233 554 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 151 km (224 409 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Previous nodeNext node

New draconic month

At 11:17 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2079 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.363°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.320° in the next northern standstill on 12 November 2079 at 08:30 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 9 November 2079 at 04:34 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
