Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 1144 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 44 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer than next lunation 1145 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 3 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠215.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠246.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 29 July 2092 at 00:58 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 August 2092 at 17:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 400 564 km

Moon is 400 564 km (248 899 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 366 986 km (228 035 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 20 July 2092 at 04:19 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 3 August 2092 at 13:51 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 31 July 2092 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.082°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.084° in the next southern standstill on 14 August 2092 at 05:05 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 3 August 2092 at 09:54 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
