Synodic month length 29.79 days

Length of current 444 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 53 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter than next lunation 445 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠144.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠144.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠171°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 08:09, this is 15 days after last perigee on 17 November 2035 at 11:30 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 406 041 km

This apogee Moon is 406 041 km (252 302 mi) away from Earth. It is 633 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 668 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 22 November 2035 at 07:40 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 December 2035 at 16:36 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 2 December 2035 at 07:25 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.270°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.300° in the next northern standstill on 15 December 2035 at 23:54 in ♊ Gemini.
