Synodic month length 29.5 days

Length of current 832 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 57 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 minutes shorter than next lunation 833 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 47 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 22 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠63.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠63.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠98.3°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 15:37, this is 12 days after last perigee on 9 April 2067 at 05:49 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 4 May 2067 at 04:17 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 404 190 km

This apogee Moon is 404 190 km (251 152 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest apogee of 2067. It is 1 218 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 139 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 18 April 2067 at 06:40 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 May 2067 at 08:57 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 17 April 2067 at 23:59 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.205°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.143° in the next southern standstill on 2 May 2067 at 04:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 29 April 2067 at 08:40 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
