Synodic month length 29.63 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 2 hours and 29 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 34 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠189°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠189°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠213.7°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 14 June 2030 at 23:37 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 June 2030 at 14:14 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 366 285 km

The Moon is 366 285 km (227 599 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 881 km (252 203 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 15 June 2030 at 05:24 in ♐ Sagittarius. 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 June 2030 at 23:50 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 15 June 2030 at 07:44 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.735°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.734° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 June 2030 at 02:45 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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