Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 39 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Distance to Moon 380 700 km

The Moon is 380 700 km (236 556 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 140 km (251 121 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 11 August 2096 at 17:28 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 25 August 2096 at 06:52 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 14 August 2096 at 16:29 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠26.461°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠-26.564° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 August 2096 at 21:09 in ♑ Capricorn.

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.
