Length of current 457 lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 458 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 16 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 47 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠113°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠113°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠146.7°. 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 3 January 2037 at 21:29 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 19 January 2037 at 17:43 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 364 077 km

Moon is 364 077 km (226 227 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 033 km (252 297 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 3 January 2037 at 20:54 in ♌ Leo, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 17 January 2037 at 08:20 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after northern standstill

4 days after previous North standstill on 2 January 2037 at 00:56 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠20.593°. Next 8 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-20.586° in the next southern standstill on 15 January 2037 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 16 January 2037 at 09:34 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
