Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 1024 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1025 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 54 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠358°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠13.3°. 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 before apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 21 October 2082 at 21:44 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 4 November 2082 at 15:15 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 403 101 km

Moon is 403 101 km (250 475 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 2 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 429 km (252 543 mi).

Moon before northern standstill

7 days after previous South standstill on 25 October 2082 at 12:18 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-27.625°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠27.510° in the next northern standstill on 9 November 2082 at 00:08 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 5 November 2082 at 14:38 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
