Synodic month length 29.8 days

Length of current 1211 lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 6 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2098. It is 16 minutes shorter than next lunation 1212 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 6 hours and 22 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 41 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠145.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠145.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠172.3°. 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 before apogee

12 days after point of perigee on 19 December 2097 at 17:43 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next day, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 January 2098 at 11:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 403 945 km

Moon is 403 945 km (251 000 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next day until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 688 km (252 704 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after its descending node on 27 December 2097 at 16:48 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 11 January 2098 at 08:24 in ♈ Aries.

Moon in southern standstill

At 23:06 on this date the Moon is meeting its South standstill point, when it will reach southern declination of ∠-27.839°. This is the year's southernmost lunar standstill of 2098. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite northward direction to face North declination of ∠27.895° in its northern standstill point on 15 January 2098 at 22:37 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 2 January 2098 at 14:32 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
