Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.

Synodic month length 29.56 days

Length of current 1138 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 26 minutes. It is 1 hour and 28 minutes shorter than next lunation 1139 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 42 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 21 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠40.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠40.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠69.4°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 09:05, this is 15 days after last apogee on 18 January 2092 at 05:57 in ♉ Taurus. 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 15 February 2092 at 03:05 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 369 678 km

This perigee Moon is 369 678 km (229 707 mi) away from Earth. It is 7 170 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 678 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

7 days after its ascending node on 26 January 2092 at 01:05 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 5 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 7 February 2092 at 23:08 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 22 January 2092 at 14:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠19.448°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-19.423° in the next southern standstill on 4 February 2092 at 17:30 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 7 February 2092 at 15:03 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
