Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 41 minutes shorter than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 17 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 52 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Distance to Moon 371 612 km

The Moon is 371 612 km (230 909 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 9 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 447 km (251 312 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 16 November 2019 at 08:48 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 November 2019 at 04:13 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 16 November 2019 at 13:52 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠23.151°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-23.200° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 November 2019 at 10:36 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 26 November 2019 at 15:06 in ♏ Scorpio the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
