Synodic month length 29.82 days

Length of current 668 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 40 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2054. It is 1 hour and 8 minutes longer than next lunation 669 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 56 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠168.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠168.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠193.2°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 19:38, this is 13 days after last apogee on 10 January 2054 at 05:56 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 13 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 6 February 2054 at 06:08 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 356 512 km

This perigee Moon is 356 512 km (221 526 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2054. It is 5 996 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 87 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 13 January 2054 at 02:36 in ♓ Pisces, 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 26 January 2054 at 01:32 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 21 January 2054 at 23:45 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.720°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.688° in the next southern standstill on 4 February 2054 at 02:34 in ♑ Capricorn.
