At 09:07 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1225 of Meeus index or 2178 from Brown series.


Synodic month length 29.79 days

29 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes is the length of new lunation 1225. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2099. It is 17 minutes longer than next lunation 1226 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠149°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠149°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠175.1°. 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 before apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 8 January 2099 at 18:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 January 2099 at 12:47 in ♓ Pisces.
