Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 803 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 46 minutes. It is 2 hours and 1 minute shorter than next lunation 804 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 7 hours and 1 minute shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠33°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠57.9°. 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 before apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 6 December 2064 at 06:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 18 December 2064 at 01:06 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 401 618 km

Moon is 401 618 km (249 554 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 936 km (251 616 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 8 December 2064 at 15:21 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.787°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.786° in the next northern standstill on 22 December 2064 at 22:07 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 23 December 2064 at 18:14 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
