At 09:26 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1203 of Meeus index or 2156 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.38 days

29 days, 9 hours and 14 minutes is the length of new lunation 1203. It is 1 hour and 40 minutes longer than next lunation 1204 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠319.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠319.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.2°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 3 April 2097 at 02:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 14 April 2097 at 21:49 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 372 164 km

Moon is 372 164 km (231 252 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 251 km (226 335 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 30 March 2097 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 13 April 2097 at 17:20 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 4 April 2097 at 05:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.474°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.513° in the next northern standstill on 17 April 2097 at 11:44 in ♋ Cancer.
