Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 1245 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 minute longer than next lunation 1246 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠320.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠340.4°. 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 before perigee

9 days after point of apogee on 22 September 2100 at 16:20 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 2 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 4 October 2100 at 21:58 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 370 140 km

Moon is 370 140 km (229 994 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 2 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 359 240 km (223 221 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after its descending node on 1 October 2100 at 12:43 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 14 October 2100 at 06:36 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days after previous North standstill on 26 September 2100 at 01:39 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.300°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.233° in the next southern standstill on 8 October 2100 at 20:58 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 1 day

After 1 day on 3 October 2100 at 18:03 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
