Synodic month length 29.7 days

Length of current 628 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 629 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 9 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 54 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠212°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠212°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠245°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 9 November 2050 at 06:44 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 November 2050 at 05:46 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 401 474 km

Moon is 401 474 km (249 464 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 851 km (227 951 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 30 October 2050 at 11:12 in ♉ Taurus, 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 13 November 2050 at 17:21 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 2 November 2050 at 04:32 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.778°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.791° in the next southern standstill on 16 November 2050 at 17:54 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 14 November 2050 at 13:41 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
