Synodic month length 29.56 days

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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 23 September 2084 at 10:54 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2084 at 09:29 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 398 310 km

Moon is 398 310 km (247 498 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 624 km (229 674 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 23 September 2084 at 08:24 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 7 October 2084 at 00:35 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 21 September 2084 at 01:38 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠25.317°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-25.185° in the next southern standstill on 5 October 2084 at 04:48 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 2 days

After 2 days on 29 September 2084 at 21:16 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
