Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 402 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 minutes shorter than next lunation 403 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 46 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 17 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠140.6°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠140.6°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠166.3°. 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 23 July 2032 at 18:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 12 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 7 August 2032 at 17:16 in ♌ Leo.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 365 381 km

Moon is 365 381 km (227 037 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 12 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 532 km (252 607 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after its ascending node on 16 July 2032 at 18:15 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 29 July 2032 at 06:13 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days after previous South standstill on 20 July 2032 at 03:40 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-19.579°. Next 6 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠19.514° in the next northern standstill on 1 August 2032 at 21:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 6 August 2032 at 05:11 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
