Synodic month length 29.72 days

Length of current 961 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 14 minutes. It is 39 minutes shorter than next lunation 962 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 30 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 33 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠171°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠171°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠194.6°. 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

12 days after point of apogee on 18 September 2077 at 06:17 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next perigee on 1 October 2077 at 22:59 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 364 478 km

Moon is 364 478 km (226 476 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next day until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 755 km (221 677 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after its descending node on 22 September 2077 at 17:43 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 4 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 October 2077 at 09:50 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 25 September 2077 at 19:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.269°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.357° in the next northern standstill on 8 October 2077 at 07:01 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 2 October 2077 at 01:20 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
