Synodic month length 29.69 days

Length of current 1240 lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 59 minutes longer than next lunation 1241 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 10 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠176.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠176.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠200.1°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

2 days after point of apogee on 10 April 2100 at 01:45 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 11 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 24 April 2100 at 02:13 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 402 622 km

Moon is 402 622 km (250 178 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 11 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 357 008 km (221 834 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 6 April 2100 at 22:10 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 8 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 April 2100 at 05:33 in ♍ Virgo.

Moon before northern standstill

11 days after previous South standstill on 31 March 2100 at 15:42 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.525°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.446° in the next northern standstill on 15 April 2100 at 08:21 in ♊ Gemini.
