Synodic month length 29.57 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 47 minutes. It is 2 hours and 31 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 3 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠225.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠225.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠258.7°.

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 27 April 2037 at 09:43 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 9 May 2037 at 06:32 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 394 188 km

The Moon is 394 188 km (244 937 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 662 km (251 445 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 23 April 2037 at 03:14 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 5 May 2037 at 23:13 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♌ Leo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 06:45 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-21.163°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠21.268° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 18 May 2037 at 17:58.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 15 May 2037 at 05:54 in ♉ Taurus 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.
