Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 636 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 637 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠43.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠43.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠70.2°. 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

8 days after point of perigee on 6 June 2051 at 01:20 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 17 June 2051 at 22:14 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 399 208 km

Moon is 399 208 km (248 056 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 346 km (251 249 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 5 June 2051 at 14:37 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 June 2051 at 06:50 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 9 June 2051 at 02:11 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.227°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.227° in the next southern standstill on 23 June 2051 at 11:15 in ♐ Sagittarius.
