Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 15 minutes. It is 2 hours and 6 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 31 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 32 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠252°

The true anomaly is ∠252°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠289°.

Moon after apogee

6 days after point of apogee on 16 December 2033 at 03:29 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 January 2034 at 00:06 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 389 357 km

The Moon is 389 357 km (241 935 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 922 km (228 616 mi).

Moon before descending node

7 days after ascending node on 15 December 2033 at 02:35 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 29 December 2033 at 00:23 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 21 December 2033 at 14:13 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.491°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 12 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.468° at the point of next northern standstill on 3 January 2034 at 15:55 in ♊ Gemini.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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