Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 40 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 2 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 38 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠329.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠329.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠346.9°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 17 March 2025 at 16:37 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 March 2025 at 05:26 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 378 964 km

The Moon is 378 964 km (235 477 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 127 km (222 530 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 14 March 2025 at 13:45 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 March 2025 at 16:29 in ♓ Pisces.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 29 March 2025 at 10:58 in ♈ Aries 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.
