Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠94.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠94.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠128.7°. 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

10 days after point of perigee on 10 June 2085 at 19:37 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 26 June 2085 at 15:24 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 394 919 km

Moon is 394 919 km (245 391 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 402 km (251 905 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 9 June 2085 at 01:14 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 22 June 2085 at 04:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon in northern standstill

At 02:38 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠24.128°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-24.123° in its southern standstill point on 5 July 2085 at 13:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.
