Synodic month length 29.58 days

Length of current 1154 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 55 minutes. It is 1 hour and 2 minutes shorter than next lunation 1155 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠109.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠109.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠142°. 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 apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 1 May 2093 at 06:12 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 13 May 2093 at 03:53 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 462 km

Moon is 404 462 km (251 321 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 526 km (225 263 mi).

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 1 May 2093 at 00:13 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.429°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.516° in the next southern standstill on 14 May 2093 at 12:06 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 11 May 2093 at 02:17 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
