New lunation 1125 / 2078

At 01:29 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1125 of Meeus index or 2078 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.63 days

29 days, 15 hours and 2 minutes is the length of new lunation 1125. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 1126 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠65.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠65.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠102°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 16 December 2090 at 06:21 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 December 2090 at 17:47 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 383 452 km

Moon is 383 452 km (238 266 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 274 km (251 204 mi).

Moon in southern standstill

At 09:02 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-18.635°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2090. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠18.625° in its northern standstill point on 4 January 2091 at 20:03 in ♊ Gemini.
