Synodic month length 29.32 days

Length of current 1192 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2096. It is 33 minutes shorter than next lunation 1193 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 8 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 1 minute longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.7°. 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 in perigee

Moon is reaching point of perigee on this date at 18:27, this is 15 days after last apogee on 3 June 2096 at 06:22 in ♏ Scorpio. Lunar orbit is starting to get wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth for 12 days ahead, until it will get to the point of next apogee on 30 June 2096 at 19:58 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 361 025 km

This perigee Moon is 361 025 km (224 331 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 483 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 9 331 km farther than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 09:30 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 8 June 2096 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-26.345°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠26.330° in the next northern standstill on 21 June 2096 at 00:14 in ♋ Cancer.
