Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes. It is 2 hours and 43 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠45.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠45.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠73.9°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 24 July 2034 at 17:20 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 8 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 8 August 2034 at 08:24 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 391 219 km

The Moon is 391 219 km (243 092 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 8 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 503 km (229 599 mi).

Moon before descending node

10 days after ascending node on 20 July 2034 at 09:54 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 3 August 2034 at 16:44 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

10 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, 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 28 July 2034 at 08:38 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.336°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.276° at the point of next northern standstill on 10 August 2034 at 13:32 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.
