At 18:40 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1204 of Meeus index or 2157 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.32 days

29 days, 7 hours and 34 minutes is the length of new lunation 1204. It is 50 minutes longer than next lunation 1205 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 10 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 59 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠339.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠339.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠355.1°. 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

10 days after point of apogee on 30 April 2097 at 19:19 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 May 2097 at 00:36 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 367 174 km

Moon is 367 174 km (228 151 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 702 km (223 508 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 1 May 2097 at 12:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.535°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.518° in the next northern standstill on 14 May 2097 at 19:24 in ♊ Gemini.
