Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 525 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 4 minutes. It is 2 hours and 5 minutes shorter than next lunation 526 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 29 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠57.3°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠57.3°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠88.8°. 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 after perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 9 July 2042 at 07:47 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 July 2042 at 20:11 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 374 306 km

Moon is 374 306 km (232 583 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 290 km (251 214 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 10 July 2042 at 13:42 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 July 2042 at 06:34 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 2 July 2042 at 18:24 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.069°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.092° in the next northern standstill on 15 July 2042 at 16:02 in ♊ Gemini.
