Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour 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 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠44.4°

The true anomaly is ∠44.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠73.2°.

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 7 April 2032 at 06:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 19 April 2032 at 03:02 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 375 853 km

The Moon is 375 853 km (233 544 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 8 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 547 km (251 374 mi).

Moon before descending node

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

Draconic month

11 days 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 northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 1 April 2032 at 17:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.688°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.650° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 April 2032 at 13:29 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.
