Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 1078 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 minutes longer than next lunation 1079 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠330.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠330.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠347.9°. 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

11 days after point of perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 in ♈ Aries. 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 22 March 2087 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 399 476 km

Moon is 399 476 km (248 223 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 772 km (252 135 mi).

Moon before ascending node

8 days after its descending node on 9 March 2087 at 22:37 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 24 March 2087 at 01:56 in ♏ Scorpio.
