Synodic month length 29.69 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 37 minutes. It is 1 hour and 32 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 3 hours and 53 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 10 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠175.3°

The true anomaly is ∠175.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠198.9°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 05:32. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 21 March 2038 at 17:16 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 19 April 2038 at 04:30 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 406 665 km

This apogee Moon is 406 665 km (252 690 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2038. It is 1 257 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 44 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

8 days after descending node on 28 March 2038 at 09:42 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 12 April 2038 at 01:27 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 28 March 2038 at 02:02 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.546°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.706° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 April 2038 at 21:03 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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