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.

True anomaly ∠44.4°

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

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 3 May 2032 at 20:49 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 16 May 2032 at 22:18 in ♌ Leo.

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 25 April 2032 at 21:52 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 8 May 2032 at 20:11 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 28 April 2032 at 22:45 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.640°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.649° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 May 2032 at 22:35 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 9 May 2032 at 13:36 in ♉ Taurus 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.
