Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 302 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 20 minutes. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes shorter than next lunation 303 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 24 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 45 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠60.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠60.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠93.2°. 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

8 days after point of perigee on 2 June 2024 at 07:23 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 14 June 2024 at 13:36 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 397 346 km

Moon is 397 346 km (246 899 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 4 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 078 km (251 082 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after its ascending node on 2 June 2024 at 03:08 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 15 June 2024 at 20:17 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 7 June 2024 at 16:40 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.365°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.345° in the next southern standstill on 22 June 2024 at 02:41 in ♑ Capricorn.
