Synodic month length 29.61 days

Length of current 950 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 38 minutes. It is 1 hour and 13 minutes longer than next lunation 951 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 54 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 9 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠254.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠254.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠290.9°. 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 before perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 18 November 2076 at 23:07 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 December 2076 at 16:17 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 387 008 km

Moon is 387 008 km (240 476 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 627 km (229 676 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 12 November 2076 at 22:52 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 27 November 2076 at 08:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 14 November 2076 at 19:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.085°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.107° in the next southern standstill on 29 November 2076 at 01:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 26 November 2076 at 11:28 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
