Synodic month length 29.28 days

Length of current 1094 lunation is 29 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2088. It is 52 minutes shorter than next lunation 1095 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 59 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 10 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠3.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠3.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠18.9°. 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

3 days after point of perigee on 18 June 2088 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini. 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 2 July 2088 at 03:52 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 371 728 km

Moon is 371 728 km (230 981 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 9 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 181 km (252 389 mi).

Moon before ascending node

6 days after its descending node on 15 June 2088 at 12:42 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 28 June 2088 at 05:57 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 18 June 2088 at 14:44 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.431°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.425° in the next southern standstill on 2 July 2088 at 04:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.
