Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 427 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes shorter than next lunation 428 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 3 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠45.9°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠45.9°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠73.9°. 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

7 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 8 August 2034 at 08:24 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 381 767 km

Moon is 381 767 km (237 219 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 369 503 km (229 599 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 20 July 2034 at 09:54 in ♍ Virgo, 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 3 August 2034 at 16:44 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days after previous South standstill on 28 July 2034 at 08:38 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.336°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.276° in the next northern standstill on 10 August 2034 at 13:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 14 August 2034 at 03:53 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
