Synodic month length 29.46 days

Length of current 1064 lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 3 minutes. It is 1 hour and 26 minutes longer than next lunation 1065 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 41 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 28 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠329.2°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠329.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347°. 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 apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2086 at 08:10 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 2 February 2086 at 04:51 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 400 496 km

Moon is 400 496 km (248 857 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 946 km (252 243 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after its descending node on 25 January 2086 at 20:34 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 9 February 2086 at 10:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 25 January 2086 at 13:48 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.242°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.132° in the next southern standstill on 9 February 2086 at 06:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.
