Synodic month length 29.63 days

Length of current 725 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 14 minutes. It is 27 minutes longer than next lunation 726 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 33 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 ∠223°. 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

2 days after point of apogee on 13 September 2058 at 22:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 September 2058 at 18:56 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 403 114 km

Moon is 403 114 km (250 483 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 283 km (225 734 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 9 September 2058 at 03:37 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 September 2058 at 15:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 11 September 2058 at 14:56 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.586°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.727° in the next southern standstill on 25 September 2058 at 22:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 17 September 2058 at 22:17 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
