Synodic month length 29.36 days

Length of current 1233 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 1234 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.4°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠355.4°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠10.7°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 14 September 2099 at 23:26 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 28 September 2099 at 22:34 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 366 456 km

Moon is 366 456 km (227 705 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 11 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 272 km (252 446 mi).

Moon after descending node

2 days after its descending node on 14 September 2099 at 23:44 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 28 September 2099 at 14:28 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days after previous North standstill on 8 September 2099 at 23:00 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.676°. Next 3 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.686° in the next southern standstill on 21 September 2099 at 11:17 in ♐ Sagittarius.
