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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 05:29, this is 15 days after last apogee on 2 July 2088 at 03:52 in ♐ Sagittarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 29 July 2088 at 13:38 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 359 287 km

This perigee Moon is 359 287 km (223 251 mi) away from Earth. It is 3 221 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 069 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 12 July 2088 at 16:44 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 25 July 2088 at 07:29 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 16 July 2088 at 02:03 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.354°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.292° in the next southern standstill on 29 July 2088 at 12:39 in ♐ Sagittarius.
