Synodic month length 29.49 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 48 minutes. It is 2 hours and 42 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 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠291.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠291.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠318.8°.

Moon before perigee

13 days after point of perigee on 15 March 2035 at 01:35 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 30 March 2035 at 05:37 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 22 March 2035 at 12:53 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 6 April 2035 at 00:06 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 17 March 2035 at 10:06 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠18.394°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-18.441° at the point of next southern standstill on 31 March 2035 at 09:27 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 8 April 2035 at 10:58 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.
