Length of current 1169 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 1 minute. It is 55 minutes shorter than next lunation 1170 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 4 hours and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠141.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠141.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠167.4°. 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 before apogee

11 days after point of perigee on 28 July 2094 at 16:14 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 12 August 2094 at 14:04 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 401 729 km

Moon is 401 729 km (249 623 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 3 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 544 km (252 615 mi).

Moon after northern standstill

1 day after previous North standstill on 8 August 2094 at 02:07 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠23.329°. Next 13 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-23.409° in the next southern standstill on 22 August 2094 at 13:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 11 August 2094 at 04:36 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
