Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 7 minutes. It is 2 hours and 25 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 1 hour and 37 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 32 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠278.5°

The true anomaly is ∠278.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠308.6°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 31 March 2027 at 01:33 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 April 2027 at 00:41 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 383 031 km

The Moon is 383 031 km (238 004 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 370 001 km (229 908 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 2 April 2027 at 10:17 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 15 April 2027 at 16:31 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 28 March 2027 at 17:43 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.526°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.412° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 April 2027 at 19:29 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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