Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 1067 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2086. It is 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 1068 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠18.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠37.1°. 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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 24 April 2086 at 22:37 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 May 2086 at 18:33 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 397 484 km

Moon is 397 484 km (246 985 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 362 km (225 783 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 17 April 2086 at 03:54 in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 1 May 2086 at 17:00 in ♐ Sagittarius.
