At 22:11 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1076 of Meeus index or 2029 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.58 days

29 days, 14 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 1076. It is 2 hours and 25 minutes longer than next lunation 1077 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠275.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠275.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠308.1°. 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 before perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 29 December 2086 at 03:31 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 January 2087 at 13:20 in ♈ Aries.
