Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 777 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 28 minutes. It is 2 hours and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 778 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠86.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠86.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠123°. 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 7 November 2062 at 23:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 19 November 2062 at 18:46 in ♊ Gemini.

Distance to Moon 395 493 km

Moon is 395 493 km (245 748 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 580 km (227 161 mi).

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 5 November 2062 at 05:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.465°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.390° in the next northern standstill on 19 November 2062 at 04:48 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 4 days

After 4 days on 16 November 2062 at 20:48 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
