At 09:05 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1017 of Meeus index or 1970 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.71 days

29 days, 16 hours and 57 minutes is the length of new lunation 1017. It is 2 hours and 12 minutes longer than next lunation 1018 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠179.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠179.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.1°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 11:30, this is 14 days after last perigee on 15 March 2082 at 04:17 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 12 April 2082 at 15:53 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 406 577 km

This apogee Moon is 406 577 km (252 635 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2082. It is 1 169 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 132 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 26 March 2082 at 13:54 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 9 April 2082 at 20:43 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 20 March 2082 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.248°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.159° in the next northern standstill on 4 April 2082 at 18:02 in ♊ Gemini.
