Synodic month length 29.31 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 22 minutes. It is 19 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 22 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 47 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠330.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠330.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠347.4°.

Moon before perigee

11 days after point of perigee on 6 June 2027 at 14:54 in ♋ Cancer. 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 22 June 2027 at 05:08 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 400 199 km

The Moon is 400 199 km (248 672 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 698 km (252 089 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 8 June 2027 at 19:23 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 June 2027 at 18:25 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 14:51 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.134°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.165° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 2 July 2027 at 19:52.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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