Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 422 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 minutes longer than next lunation 423 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠317.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠317.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠337.6°. 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 apogee

10 days after point of perigee on 21 February 2034 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 9 March 2034 at 16:05 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 395 190 km

Moon is 395 190 km (245 560 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 268 km (251 822 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 21 February 2034 at 05:47 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 6 March 2034 at 14:21 in ♍ Virgo.
