New lunation 1167 / 2120

At 12:09 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1167 of Meeus index or 2120 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.5 days

29 days, 11 hours and 54 minutes is the length of new lunation 1167. It is 1 hour and 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 1168 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 50 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 19 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠74.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠74.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠109.9°. 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 8 May 2094 at 13:33 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 21 May 2094 at 19:13 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 383 472 km

Moon is 383 472 km (238 278 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 206 km (251 162 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 4 May 2094 at 20:35 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 May 2094 at 21:46 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-23.185°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.256° in the next northern standstill on 18 May 2094 at 05:10 in ♋ Cancer.
