At 17:20 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1194 of Meeus index or 2147 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.4 days

29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes is the length of new lunation 1194. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1195 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 4 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠47.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠47.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠76.1°. 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

2 days after point of perigee on 16 July 2096 at 15:28 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 July 2096 at 13:17 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 373 957 km

Moon is 373 957 km (232 366 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 198 km (251 157 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 15 July 2096 at 15:38 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2096 at 04:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 18 July 2096 at 09:23 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠26.342°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-26.382° in the next southern standstill on 1 August 2096 at 13:13 in ♑ Capricorn.
