Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 565 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes shorter than next lunation 566 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠16.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠16.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠34.3°. 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 22 September 2045 at 12:20 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 8 October 2045 at 08:16 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon is 404 243 km (251 185 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 867 km (225 475 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 22 September 2045 at 19:34 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 6 October 2045 at 15:11 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 17 September 2045 at 22:27 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.716°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.609° in the next northern standstill on 2 October 2045 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.
