Synodic month length 29.6 days

Length of current 931 lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 50 minutes shorter than next lunation 932 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠113.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠113.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠145.4°. 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 before perigee

6 days after point of apogee on 20 April 2075 at 18:02 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 2 May 2075 at 16:21 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 384 559 km

Moon is 384 559 km (238 954 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 5 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 361 942 km (224 900 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after its ascending node on 22 April 2075 at 03:55 in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 5 May 2075 at 05:59 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days after previous North standstill on 21 April 2075 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠22.404°. Next 7 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-22.503° in the next southern standstill on 4 May 2075 at 22:18 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 3 days

After 3 days on 30 April 2075 at 18:37 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
