Synodic month length 29.55 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It is 1 hour and 21 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 25 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 38 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠108.4°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠108.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠140.6°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 13 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 25 June 2032 at 14:55 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 397 838 km

The Moon is 397 838 km (247 205 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 652 km (225 342 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 5 June 2032 at 02:41 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 19 June 2032 at 13:56 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

25 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 8 June 2032 at 07:17 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.688°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.677° at the point of next southern standstill on 22 June 2032 at 16:28 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 23 June 2032 at 11:32 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
