Length of current 1047 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes longer than next lunation 1048 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 48 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 15 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠232.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠232.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠268.2°. 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

13 days after point of apogee on 26 August 2084 at 17:37 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 11 September 2084 at 14:43 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 363 433 km

Moon is 363 433 km (225 827 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 364 932 km (226 758 mi).

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 7 September 2084 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.423°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.317° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2084 at 01:38 in ♊ Gemini.
