Synodic month length 29.4 days

Length of current 757 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 minutes longer than next lunation 758 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 3 hours and 7 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠324.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠324.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠343.2°. 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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 23 March 2061 at 21:11 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 14 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 8 April 2061 at 18:12 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 363 302 km

Moon is 363 302 km (225 745 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 14 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 543 km (251 993 mi).

Moon after ascending node

2 days after its ascending node on 22 March 2061 at 23:32 in ♈ Aries, 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 5 April 2061 at 06:12 in ♎ Libra.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days after previous South standstill on 15 March 2061 at 03:06 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.381°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.422° in the next northern standstill on 28 March 2061 at 01:47 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

After 10 days on 4 April 2061 at 21:47 in ♎ Libra, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
