New lunation 1078 / 2031

At 23:45 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1078 of Meeus index or 2031 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.4 days

29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes is the length of new lunation 1078. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1079 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠330.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠330.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347.9°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 22 February 2087 at 20:55 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 370 997 km

Moon is 370 997 km (230 527 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 586 km (224 679 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 25 February 2087 at 00:02 in ♐ Sagittarius, 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 9 March 2087 at 22:37 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 26 February 2087 at 16:05 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.215°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.096° in the next northern standstill on 11 March 2087 at 11:26 in ♊ Gemini.
