New lunation 1000 / 1953

At 15:37 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1000 of Meeus index or 1953 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.65 days

29 days, 15 hours and 33 minutes is the length of new lunation 1000. It is 2 hours and 19 minutes shorter than next lunation 1001 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 49 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 14 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠82.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠82.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠119.5°. 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 apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 30 November 2080 at 07:40 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 16 December 2080 at 08:18 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 391 899 km

Moon is 391 899 km (243 515 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 296 km (251 839 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 5 December 2080 at 06:12 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 December 2080 at 12:25 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 28 November 2080 at 22:14 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.451°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.401° in the next southern standstill on 12 December 2080 at 02:19 in ♑ Capricorn.
