At 23:45 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 1078 of Meeus index or 2031 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 6 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠330.8°

The true anomaly is ∠330.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠347.9°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 22 February 2087 at 20:55 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 370 997 km

The Moon is 370 997 km (230 527 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 361 586 km (224 679 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after ascending node on 25 February 2087 at 00:02 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 9 March 2087 at 22:37 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 26 February 2087 at 16:05 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.215°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.096° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 March 2087 at 11:26 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
