Synodic month length 29.3 days

Length of current 439 lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 12 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 minutes shorter than next lunation 440 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 32 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 37 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠9.1°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠9.1°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠25.6°. 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 apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 17 July 2035 at 17:31 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 10 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 August 2035 at 04:06 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 396 686 km

Moon is 396 686 km (246 489 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 10 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 360 719 km (224 140 mi).

Moon before descending node

13 days after its ascending node on 9 July 2035 at 01:03 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 23 July 2035 at 13:46 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 18 July 2035 at 15:35 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-18.832°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠18.787° in the next northern standstill on 1 August 2035 at 09:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 12 days

After 12 days on 3 August 2035 at 17:12 in ♌ Leo, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
