Synodic month length 29.31 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 28 minutes. It is 6 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠332.7°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠332.7°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠349.5°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 13 July 2010 at 11:21 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 July 2010 at 23:50 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 400 943 km

The Moon is 400 943 km (249 134 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 955 km (252 249 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 24 July 2010 at 07:59 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 August 2010 at 17:24 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 22 July 2010 at 11:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.034°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.984° at the point of next northern standstill on 6 August 2010 at 02:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
