Synodic month length 29.6 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 27 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute 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 1 hour and 43 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 20 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠67.6°

The true anomaly is ∠67.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠104.1°.

Distance to Moon 387 981 km

The Moon is 387 981 km (241 080 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 748 km (251 499 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 26 February 2030 at 05:23 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 12 March 2030 at 06:43 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 25 February 2030 at 22:24 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-23.278°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.130° at the point of next northern standstill on 12 March 2030 at 01:51 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.
