Synodic month length 29.34 days

Length of current 466 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 20 minutes shorter than next lunation 467 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 35 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 34 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠354.5°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠354.5°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠9.6°. 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 perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 10 September 2037 at 02:13 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 7 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 24 September 2037 at 03:44 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 382 186 km

Moon is 382 186 km (237 479 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 7 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 418 km (252 536 mi).

Moon before southern standstill

11 days after previous North standstill on 5 September 2037 at 06:20 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.473°. Next day the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.547° in the next southern standstill on 17 September 2037 at 19:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

After 7 days on 24 September 2037 at 11:32 in ♈ Aries, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
