New lunation 1101 / 2054

At 20:17 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1101 of Meeus index or 2054 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.79 days

29 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes is the length of new lunation 1101. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2089. It is 1 hour and 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1102 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠185.7°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠185.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠211.9°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 04:23, this is 13 days after last perigee on 28 December 2088 at 06:32 in ♋ Cancer. 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 25 January 2089 at 19:36 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 406 703 km

This apogee Moon is 406 703 km (252 714 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2089. It is 1 295 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 6 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

6 days after its ascending node on 4 January 2089 at 12:45 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 19 January 2089 at 04:30 in ♈ Aries.
