Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 624 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 625 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 11 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 52 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠104.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠104.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠137°. 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 perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 25 June 2050 at 04:29 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 7 July 2050 at 02:25 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 377 221 km

Moon is 377 221 km (234 394 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 256 km (225 717 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 30 June 2050 at 22:15 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 July 2050 at 14:19 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon in southern standstill

At 03:14 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-20.482°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠20.446° in its northern standstill point on 15 July 2050 at 23:05 in ♊ Gemini.
