Synodic month length 29.42 days

Length of current 397 lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 1 minute. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2032. It is 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 398 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 2 hours and 44 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 25 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠6.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠6.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠23.4°. 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 after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 10 February 2032 at 20:46 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 23 February 2032 at 18:41 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 7 February 2032 at 03:44 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.110°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠20.009° in the next northern standstill on 19 February 2032 at 21:21 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 26 February 2032 at 07:43 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
