Synodic month length 29.74 days

Length of current 417 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 49 minutes. It is 22 minutes shorter than next lunation 418 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 5 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 58 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠166.6°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠166.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠190.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 25 September 2033 at 01:33 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 October 2033 at 12:11 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 386 872 km

Moon is 386 872 km (240 391 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 7 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 356 825 km (221 721 mi).

Moon before descending node

6 days after its ascending node on 24 September 2033 at 12:46 in ♎ Libra, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 6 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 8 October 2033 at 05:55 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day after previous South standstill on 30 September 2033 at 17:33 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.282°. Next 11 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.284° in the next northern standstill on 13 October 2033 at 07:00 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 6 days

After 6 days on 8 October 2033 at 10:58 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
