Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 678 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 32 minutes. It is 2 hours and 46 minutes shorter than next lunation 679 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠44°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠44°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠72.4°. 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 perigee

11 days after point of apogee on 8 November 2054 at 19:52 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 November 2054 at 15:48 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 366 488 km

Moon is 366 488 km (227 725 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 009 km (229 913 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 8 November 2054 at 04:08 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 21 November 2054 at 22:10 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 18 November 2054 at 17:11 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.632°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.707° in the next southern standstill on 1 December 2054 at 17:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 29 November 2054 at 08:33 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
