Synodic month length 29.52 days

Length of current 796 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 26 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute longer than next lunation 797 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 51 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠235.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠235.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠269.7°. 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

12 days after point of apogee on 11 May 2064 at 16:10 in ♓ Pisces. 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 May 2064 at 12:05 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 364 389 km

Moon is 364 389 km (226 421 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 280 km (226 974 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 22 May 2064 at 17:02 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 4 June 2064 at 13:10 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 18 May 2064 at 13:54 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠27.360°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-27.330° in the next southern standstill on 31 May 2064 at 10:13 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 30 May 2064 at 10:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
