New lunation 1166 / 2119

At 01:37 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1166 of Meeus index or 2119 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.44 days

29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes is the length of new lunation 1166. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1167 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠45.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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

3 days after point of perigee on 12 April 2094 at 03:26 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 376 577 km

Moon is 376 577 km (233 994 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 400 km (251 283 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 7 April 2094 at 19:27 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 20 April 2094 at 16:57 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 7 April 2094 at 19:58 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.963°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.077° in the next northern standstill on 20 April 2094 at 20:13 in ♋ Cancer.
