Synodic month length 29.5 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 1 minute. It is 1 hour and 56 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 44 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 26 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠244.2°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠244.2°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠279.1°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 22 June 2029 at 15:35 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 404 731 km

The Moon is 404 731 km (251 488 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 317 km (251 231 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after ascending node on 26 June 2029 at 03:09 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 10 July 2029 at 12:33 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 24 June 2029 at 23:29 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.401°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.399° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 July 2029 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 8 days

In 8 days on 11 July 2029 at 15:51 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.
