Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 715 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 716 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠318.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠318.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠339°. 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

8 days after point of apogee on 15 November 2057 at 17:25 in ♋ Cancer. 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 27 November 2057 at 20:20 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 374 360 km

Moon is 374 360 km (232 617 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 527 km (223 400 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after its ascending node on 14 November 2057 at 04:02 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2057 at 21:30 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 15 November 2057 at 14:41 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠24.485°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-24.511° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2057 at 01:11 in ♑ Capricorn.
