New lunation 1024 / 1977

At 18:50 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1024 of Meeus index or 1977 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.4 days

29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes is the length of new lunation 1024. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1025 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠13.3°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 21:44, this is 13 days after last apogee on 8 October 2082 at 14:12 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 4 November 2082 at 15:15 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 356 831 km

This perigee Moon is 356 831 km (221 725 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2082. It is 5 677 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 406 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 17 October 2082 at 11:28 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 October 2082 at 23:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 12 October 2082 at 18:49 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.713°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.625° in the next southern standstill on 25 October 2082 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius.
