Synodic month length 29.81 days

Length of current 334 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 32 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2027. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 335 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠184.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠184.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠210.4°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 3 February 2027 at 13:31 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 February 2027 at 07:30 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 404 403 km

Moon is 404 403 km (251 284 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 015 km (224 324 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 23 January 2027 at 17:26 in ♌ Leo, 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 6 February 2027 at 21:44 in ♒ Aquarius.
