Synodic month length 29.62 days

Length of current 934 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 7 minutes longer than next lunation 935 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 48 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠193.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠193.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠218.9°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 04:19, this is 12 days after last perigee on 26 July 2075 at 17:26 in ♑ Capricorn. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 23 August 2075 at 22:14 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 405 671 km

This apogee Moon is 405 671 km (252 072 mi) away from Earth. It is 263 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 038 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 23:02 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 14 days to meet descending node on 22 August 2075 at 16:33 in ♑ Capricorn.

New draconic month

At 23:02 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon in northern standstill

At 18:41 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠22.688°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-22.754° in its southern standstill point on 22 August 2075 at 13:47 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 11 August 2075 at 21:10 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
