Synodic month length 29.51 days

Length of current 310 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 56 minutes longer than next lunation 311 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠305.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠305.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠329.3°. 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

6 days after point of apogee on 18 February 2025 at 01:11 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 March 2025 at 21:18 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 385 639 km

Moon is 385 639 km (239 625 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 967 km (224 916 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 15 February 2025 at 06:53 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 1 March 2025 at 05:40 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 22 February 2025 at 22:32 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.673°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.710° in the next northern standstill on 7 March 2025 at 15:56 in ♊ Gemini.
