Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 1158 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 23 minutes. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes longer than next lunation 1159 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 39 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 24 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠215.5°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠215.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠247.8°. 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 in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 07:53, this is 11 days after last perigee on 3 September 2093 at 09:46 in ♒ Aquarius. Lunar orbit is starting to get closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth for 15 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next perigee on 1 October 2093 at 02:43 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 404 825 km

This apogee Moon is 404 825 km (251 547 mi) away from Earth. It is 583 km farther than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 884 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 11:15 on this date, it crosses the ecliptic from South to North. Moon will follow the northern part of its orbit for the next 13 days to meet descending node on 29 September 2093 at 05:00 in ♑ Capricorn.

New draconic month

At 11:15 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 14 September 2093 at 09:50 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.823°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.954° in the next southern standstill on 28 September 2093 at 09:48 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 20 September 2093 at 18:16 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
