Synodic month length 29.67 days

Length of current 1141 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 58 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2092. It is 19 minutes longer than next lunation 1142 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 14 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 49 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠140.8°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.8°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.3°. 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 01:16, this is 12 days after last apogee on 10 April 2092 at 15:02 in ♉ Taurus. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 14 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 7 May 2092 at 23:16 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 358 397 km

This perigee Moon is 358 397 km (222 698 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 111 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 11 959 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

6 days after its ascending node on 17 April 2092 at 00:51 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 April 2092 at 12:00 in ♒ Aquarius.
