New lunation 1031 / 1984

At 18:14 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1031 of Meeus index or 1984 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.64 days

29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes is the length of new lunation 1031. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 1032 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 23 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠180.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠180.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠203.8°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 16 May 2083 at 17:26 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 30 May 2083 at 23:07 in ♏ Scorpio.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 247 km

Moon is 405 247 km (251 809 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 245 km (221 982 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 8 May 2083 at 08:03 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 22 May 2083 at 23:17 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 4 May 2083 at 19:46 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.010°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.923° in the next northern standstill on 19 May 2083 at 00:24 in ♊ Gemini.
