At 03:48 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1116 of Meeus index or 2069 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.64 days

29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes is the length of new lunation 1116. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 1117 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠214.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠214.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠246°. 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

3 days after point of apogee on 27 March 2090 at 18:35 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 12 April 2090 at 12:39 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 327 km

Moon is 400 327 km (248 752 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 767 km (224 792 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 30 March 2090 at 05:59 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 April 2090 at 16:39 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 22 March 2090 at 18:06 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.136°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.167° in the next northern standstill on 6 April 2090 at 10:07 in ♋ Cancer.
