At 21:20 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1129 of Meeus index or 2082 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.66 days

29 days, 15 hours and 47 minutes is the length of new lunation 1129. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 1130 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠189.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠189.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠214.7°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 17 April 2091 at 19:25 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 May 2091 at 14:03 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 404 405 km

Moon is 404 405 km (251 286 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 358 058 km (222 487 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 14 April 2091 at 19:58 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 29 April 2091 at 04:04 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 9 April 2091 at 13:20 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.596°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.701° in the next northern standstill on 24 April 2091 at 07:29 in ♋ Cancer.
