Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 16 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2031. It is 24 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 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 31 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠165.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠165.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠188.7°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 4 July 2031 at 21:14 in ♑ Capricorn. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 18 July 2031 at 14:28 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 363 478 km

The Moon is 363 478 km (225 855 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 13 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 535 km (252 609 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 1 July 2031 at 18:35 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 July 2031 at 12:38 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 3 July 2031 at 05:15 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-21.077°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠21.045° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 July 2031 at 09:01 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.
