At 20:20 on this date the Moon completes the old and enters a new synodic month with lunation 699 of Meeus index or 1652 from Brown series.

Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 29 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠255.1°

The true anomaly is ∠255.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠289.7°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 7 July 2056 at 00:55 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 22 July 2056 at 11:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 392 956 km

The Moon is 392 956 km (244 172 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 368 056 km (228 699 mi).

Moon in ascending node

Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 21:09 crossing the ecliptic from South to North to meet descending node 13 days later on 25 July 2056 at 20:38 in ♑ Capricorn.

New draconic month

At 21:09 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

PreviousNext

Moon at northern standstill

At 03:18 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠22.004°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-22.000° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 25 July 2056 at 04:24.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
