Synodic month length 29.64 days

Length of current 1157 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 18 minutes. It is 55 minutes longer than next lunation 1158 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 34 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 29 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠190.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠190.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠215.5°. 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

1 day after point of apogee on 18 August 2093 at 17:01 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 3 September 2093 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 404 471 km

Moon is 404 471 km (251 327 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 362 104 km (225 001 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 19 August 2093 at 07:10 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 12 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 2 September 2093 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days after previous North standstill on 18 August 2093 at 03:18 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.668°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.745° in the next southern standstill on 1 September 2093 at 03:48 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 22 August 2093 at 03:53 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
