Synodic month length 29.81 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 20 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2037. It is 38 minutes longer 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 6 hours and 36 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 27 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠146.7°

The true anomaly is ∠146.7°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠173.2°.

Distance to Moon 401 792 km

The Moon is 401 792 km (249 662 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 033 km (252 297 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after ascending node on 3 January 2037 at 20:54 in ♌ Leo. 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 January 2037 at 08:20 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 15 January 2037 at 03:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.586°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠20.575° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 January 2037 at 12:23 in ♋ Cancer.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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