Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 649 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 650 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠23.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠23.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠43°. 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

6 days after point of perigee on 25 June 2052 at 08:22 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 July 2052 at 12:41 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 387 938 km

Moon is 387 938 km (241 053 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 6 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 232 km (251 799 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 20 June 2052 at 22:46 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 July 2052 at 14:53 in ♎ Libra.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 26 June 2052 at 04:20 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.498°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.479° in the next southern standstill on 10 July 2052 at 04:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
