Synodic month length 29.38 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 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 3 hours and 33 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 36 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠337.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠337.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠353.9°.

Moon before apogee

9 days after point of apogee on 6 April 2034 at 03:44 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 19 April 2034 at 04:07 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 372 493 km

The Moon is 372 493 km (231 456 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 357 338 km (222 040 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 2 April 2034 at 21:12 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following day, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 April 2034 at 02:12 in ♈ Aries.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 10 April 2034 at 02:35 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.168°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.212° at the point of next northern standstill on 22 April 2034 at 20:25 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 18 April 2034 at 19:26 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.
