Synodic month length 29.29 days

Length of current 648 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2052. It is 41 minutes shorter than next lunation 649 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠7.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠7.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.2°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 10 June 2052 at 00:46 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2052 at 08:22 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 397 621 km

Moon is 397 621 km (247 070 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 167 km (223 797 mi).
