Synodic month length 29.58 days

29 days, 14 hours and 1 minute is the length of new lunation 86. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 87 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠276.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠276.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠308.6°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 10 January 2007 at 16:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 22 January 2007 at 12:24 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 379 898 km

Moon is 379 898 km (236 058 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 4 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 929 km (227 999 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 8 January 2007 at 17:44 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 22 January 2007 at 13:00 in ♓ Pisces.
