Synodic month length 29.7 days

Length of current 1085 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes. It is 2 hours and 11 minutes shorter than next lunation 1086 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠129.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠129.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠158.4°. 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 perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 13 October 2087 at 09:38 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 9 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 October 2087 at 19:16 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 376 326 km

Moon is 376 326 km (233 838 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 334 km (252 484 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 13 October 2087 at 21:45 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 27 October 2087 at 13:13 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 16 October 2087 at 04:13 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.085°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.046° in the next southern standstill on 30 October 2087 at 09:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 26 October 2087 at 11:29 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
