Synodic month length 29.57 days

Length of current 461 lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 minutes longer than next lunation 462 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 6 hours shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠225.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠225.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠258.7°. 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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 11 April 2037 at 13:04 in ♓ Pisces. 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 27 April 2037 at 09:43 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 377 616 km

Moon is 377 616 km (234 640 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 607 km (225 935 mi).

Moon before ascending node

11 days after its descending node on 8 April 2037 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 2 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 23 April 2037 at 03:14 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

24 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days after previous South standstill on 6 April 2037 at 21:45 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-20.915°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠21.064° in the next northern standstill on 21 April 2037 at 11:52 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 9 days

After 9 days on 29 April 2037 at 18:54 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
