Synodic month length 29.42 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 5 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 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 2 hours and 39 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 30 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠279.1°

The true anomaly is ∠279.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠309.2°.

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 4 July 2029 at 16:05 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 18 July 2029 at 11:25 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 385 868 km

The Moon is 385 868 km (239 767 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 6 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 666 km (229 700 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 10 July 2029 at 12:33 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 23 July 2029 at 11:12 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 9 July 2029 at 05:56 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠24.399°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠-24.380° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 July 2029 at 07:07 in ♐ Sagittarius.

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.
