Synodic month length 29.35 days

Length of current 1220 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 24 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 1221 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 20 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 49 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠10.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠10.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠26.9°. 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 7 September 2098 at 19:51 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 23 September 2098 at 09:26 in ♍ Virgo.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 404 684 km

Moon is 404 684 km (251 459 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 13 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 024 km (224 330 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 29 August 2098 at 10:54 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 3 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 12 September 2098 at 21:33 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 4 September 2098 at 08:51 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.462°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.525° in the next northern standstill on 18 September 2098 at 20:59 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 10 September 2098 at 17:33 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
