Synodic month length 29.43 days

Length of current 396 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 18 minutes. It is 18 minutes longer than next lunation 397 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 43 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠351.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠351.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠6.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 27 January 2032 at 16:13 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 10 February 2032 at 20:46 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 376 650 km

Moon is 376 650 km (234 039 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 948 km (221 797 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after its ascending node on 4 February 2032 at 11:35 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 11 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 16 February 2032 at 21:13 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days after previous North standstill on 23 January 2032 at 14:33 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.240°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.110° in the next southern standstill on 7 February 2032 at 03:44 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

After 5 days on 11 February 2032 at 06:24 in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
