Synodic month length 29.68 days

29 days, 16 hours and 16 minutes is the length of new lunation 95. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 96 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠131.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠131.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠159.5°. 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

11 days after point of perigee on 31 August 2007 at 00:12 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 4 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 15 September 2007 at 21:06 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 397 926 km

Moon is 397 926 km (247 260 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 645 km (252 056 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 10 September 2007 at 14:49 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 September 2007 at 00:40 in ♓ Pisces.
