New lunation 1117 / 2070

At 19:12 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1117 of Meeus index or 2070 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.51 days

29 days, 12 hours and 17 minutes is the length of new lunation 1117. It is 2 hours and 35 minutes longer than next lunation 1118 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 42 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠246°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠246°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠280.8°. 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

5 days after point of apogee on 24 April 2090 at 10:58 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 May 2090 at 05:31 in ♎ Libra.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 395 010 km

Moon is 395 010 km (245 448 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 931 km (228 000 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 26 April 2090 at 12:13 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 May 2090 at 23:10 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 19 April 2090 at 02:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.213°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.290° in the next northern standstill on 3 May 2090 at 15:57 in ♊ Gemini.
