Length of current 623 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 31 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 624 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 13 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 56 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠69.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠69.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠104.1°. 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 June 2050 at 18:25 in ♒ Aquarius. 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 25 June 2050 at 04:29 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 373 380 km

Moon is 373 380 km (232 008 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 736 km (251 491 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after its ascending node on 3 June 2050 at 14:47 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 June 2050 at 11:27 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days after previous South standstill on 5 June 2050 at 17:07 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.508°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.513° in the next northern standstill on 18 June 2050 at 15:49 in ♊ Gemini.
