Synodic month length 29.46 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 4 minutes. It is 1 hour and 53 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 40 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 29 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠317.3°

The true anomaly is ∠317.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠337.6°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 9 February 2034 at 21:37 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 February 2034 at 15:30 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 375 740 km

The Moon is 375 740 km (233 474 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 364 926 km (226 755 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 7 February 2034 at 08:04 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 February 2034 at 05:47 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

11 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

4 days since the previous standstill on 14 February 2034 at 10:08 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.256°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.195° at the point of next northern standstill on 27 February 2034 at 06:42 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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