Synodic month length 29.71 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 7 minutes. It is 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 23 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 40 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠99.9°

The true anomaly is ∠99.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠136.2°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 5 January 2029 at 04:16 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 20 January 2029 at 18:08 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 393 970 km

The Moon is 393 970 km (244 802 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 884 km (251 583 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 13 January 2029 at 21:21 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 January 2029 at 08:40 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 12 January 2029 at 00:15 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.199°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.172° at the point of next northern standstill on 26 January 2029 at 12:31 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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