Synodic month length 29.39 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 28 minutes. It is 33 minutes longer 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 3 hours and 16 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 53 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠353°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠353°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠8.3°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 15 March 2033 at 22:00 in ♍ Virgo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 30 March 2033 at 06:09 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 373 698 km

The Moon is 373 698 km (232 205 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 4 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 444 km (222 105 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after ascending node on 18 March 2033 at 05:18 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 31 March 2033 at 11:09 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

7 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♎ Libra, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 23 March 2033 at 08:32 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.613°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.590° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 April 2033 at 20:56 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 30 March 2033 at 17:52 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.
