Synodic month length 29.44 days

Length of current 1166 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 32 minutes. It is 1 hour and 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 1167 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 12 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 57 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠45.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠74.7°. 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 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 May 2094 at 13:33 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 405 434 km

Moon is 405 434 km (251 925 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 14 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 651 km (229 690 mi).

Moon after northern standstill

3 days after previous North standstill on 20 April 2094 at 20:13 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.077°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.185° in the next southern standstill on 5 May 2094 at 01:36 in ♑ Capricorn.
