Synodic month length 29.31 days

Length of current 1108 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter than next lunation 1109 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 14 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 55 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 ∠19.1°. 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 perigee

5 days after point of perigee on 6 August 2089 at 03:33 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 August 2089 at 09:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 379 462 km

Moon is 379 462 km (235 787 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 195 km (252 398 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 10 August 2089 at 02:59 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 24 August 2089 at 15:08 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 3 August 2089 at 05:21 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠18.449°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-18.382° in the next southern standstill on 16 August 2089 at 02:34 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 21 August 2089 at 06:16 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
