New lunation 1217 / 2170

At 18:23 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1217 of Meeus index or 2170 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.32 days

29 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes is the length of new lunation 1217. It is 58 minutes longer than next lunation 1218 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 1 minute shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 8 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠320.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339.4°. 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 18 June 2098 at 01:07 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 30 June 2098 at 07:43 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 368 068 km

Moon is 368 068 km (228 707 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 588 km (223 438 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after its ascending node on 23 June 2098 at 14:19 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 July 2098 at 02:56 in ♎ Libra.

Moon in northern standstill

At 19:01 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠28.163°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-28.167° in its southern standstill point on 11 July 2098 at 22:01 in ♐ Sagittarius.
