Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 1246 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 12 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2100. It is 34 minutes shorter than next lunation 1247 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠340.4°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠340.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠356.4°. 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 apogee

9 days after point of perigee on 4 October 2100 at 21:58 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 October 2100 at 04:03 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 393 144 km

Moon is 393 144 km (244 288 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 359 km (252 500 mi).

New draconic month

At 06:36 on this date the Moon is completing its previous draconic month and is entering the new one.


Moon after southern standstill

5 days after previous South standstill on 8 October 2100 at 20:58 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.233°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.129° in the next northern standstill on 23 October 2100 at 08:12 in ♊ Gemini.
