Synodic month length 29.67 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 2 minutes. It is 1 hour and 54 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠188.3°

The true anomaly is ∠188.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠213.4°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 12 April 2029 at 23:04 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 27 April 2029 at 16:24 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 404 627 km

The Moon is 404 627 km (251 424 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 829 km (222 345 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 5 April 2029 at 05:50 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 19 April 2029 at 21:27 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 3 April 2029 at 19:08 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.661°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.526° at the point of next northern standstill on 18 April 2029 at 10:56 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.
