29 days, 9 hours and 40 minutes is the length of new lunation 672. It is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than next lunation 673 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠288.9°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠288.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠316.1°. 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 before perigee

7 days after point of apogee on 30 April 2054 at 05:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 May 2054 at 03:26 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 383 385 km

Moon is 383 385 km (238 224 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 431 km (229 554 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 2 May 2054 at 00:18 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 May 2054 at 06:44 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 27 April 2054 at 01:47 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.930°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.033° in the next northern standstill on 11 May 2054 at 05:32 in ♋ Cancer.
