Synodic month length 29.56 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 27 minutes. It is 2 hours and 33 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 43 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 20 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠108.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠108.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠140.6°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 31 July 2033 at 23:13 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 12 August 2033 at 21:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 371 766 km

The Moon is 371 766 km (231 005 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 710 km (225 378 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 1 August 2033 at 03:38 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 August 2033 at 11:54 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days since the previous standstill on 7 August 2033 at 00:25 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.529°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.456° at the point of next northern standstill on 19 August 2033 at 17:46 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
