Synodic month length 29.53 days

Length of current 936 lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 41 minutes. It is 49 minutes longer than next lunation 937 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 6 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠251.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠251.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠287.7°. 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 apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 20 September 2075 at 11:42 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 October 2075 at 14:34 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 404 835 km

Moon is 404 835 km (251 553 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 168 km (251 138 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 18 September 2075 at 19:47 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 2 October 2075 at 05:26 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 18 September 2075 at 20:04 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.947°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠23.070° in the next northern standstill on 2 October 2075 at 08:38 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 9 October 2075 at 23:43 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
