Synodic month length 29.44 days

29 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes is the length of new lunation 88. It is 1 hour and 35 minutes longer than next lunation 89 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 53 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠331.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠331.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠348.7°. 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

9 days after point of apogee on 7 February 2007 at 12:39 in ♎ Libra. 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 19 February 2007 at 09:34 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 369 556 km

Moon is 369 556 km (229 631 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 440 km (224 588 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 4 February 2007 at 22:44 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 18 February 2007 at 20:43 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 13 February 2007 at 07:33 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.568°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.600° in the next northern standstill on 25 February 2007 at 23:35 in ♊ Gemini.
