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 after apogee

4 days after point of apogee on 22 June 2027 at 05:08 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 July 2027 at 20:55 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 395 808 km

The Moon is 395 808 km (245 944 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 284 km (222 627 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 22 June 2027 at 18:25 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 July 2027 at 02:14 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 18 June 2027 at 14:51 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.134°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.165° at the point of next northern standstill on 2 July 2027 at 19:52 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 4 July 2027 at 03:02 in ♋ Cancer 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.
