Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 15 minutes. It is 41 minutes 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 29 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 40 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠23.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠23.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠44.4°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 22 March 2032 at 08:27 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 381 475 km

The Moon is 381 475 km (237 038 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 7 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 117 km (226 873 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 29 March 2032 at 15:09 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 April 2032 at 11:00 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 18 March 2032 at 04:54 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.775°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.688° at the point of next southern standstill on 1 April 2032 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 10 April 2032 at 02:39 in ♈ Aries 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.
