Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 563 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 11 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2045. It is 37 minutes shorter than next lunation 564 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 36 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠345.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠345.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠0.7°. 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 before apogee

14 days after point of perigee on 15 July 2045 at 07:12 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 30 July 2045 at 02:00 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 405 424 km

Moon is 405 424 km (251 919 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 198 km (252 400 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 16 July 2045 at 11:05 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 30 July 2045 at 07:42 in ♒ Aquarius.
