Synodic month length 29.54 days

Length of current 1222 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 2 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than next lunation 1223 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 18 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours and 45 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠48.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠48.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠78.8°. 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 2 November 2098 at 03:39 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 16 November 2098 at 08:08 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 404 818 km

Moon is 404 818 km (251 542 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 12 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 370 207 km (230 036 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 23 October 2098 at 06:35 in ♎ Libra, 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 6 November 2098 at 11:42 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 29 October 2098 at 00:40 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.513°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.455° in the next northern standstill on 12 November 2098 at 08:09 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 9 November 2098 at 00:15 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
