Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 697 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 58 minutes. It is 1 hour and 42 minutes longer than next lunation 698 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠196°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠196°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠222.4°. 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 after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 9 June 2056 at 08:50 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 25 June 2056 at 03:02 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 405 176 km

Moon is 405 176 km (251 765 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 147 km (225 649 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after its descending node on 1 June 2056 at 02:08 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 15 June 2056 at 14:37 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 31 May 2056 at 08:32 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-21.964°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.004° in the next northern standstill on 14 June 2056 at 20:08 in ♋ Cancer.
