Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 775 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 776 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 32 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠31.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠31.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠54.6°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 13 September 2062 at 08:35 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 29 September 2062 at 03:19 in ♌ Leo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 398 577 km

Moon is 398 577 km (247 664 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 367 253 km (228 200 mi).

Moon before ascending node

13 days after its descending node on 4 September 2062 at 03:11 in ♍ Virgo, 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 18 September 2062 at 11:25 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 11 September 2062 at 13:11 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.670°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.655° in the next northern standstill on 25 September 2062 at 16:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 18 September 2062 at 18:36 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
