Synodic month length 29.66 days

Length of current 1183 lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 49 minutes shorter than next lunation 1184 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠142.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠142.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠168.3°. 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 perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 14 September 2095 at 22:53 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 29 September 2095 at 20:21 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 365 091 km

Moon is 365 091 km (226 857 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 578 km (252 636 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after its descending node on 7 September 2095 at 00:47 in ♐ Sagittarius, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 19 September 2095 at 14:10 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days after previous South standstill on 9 September 2095 at 01:37 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-25.188°. Next 4 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠25.292° in the next northern standstill on 21 September 2095 at 14:29 in ♋ Cancer.
