The length of this lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 8 minutes and it is 2 hours longer than the upcoming lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decrease with the lunar orbit 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 24 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 39 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.
Lunar orbit details for
True anomaly ∠226°
The true anomaly of the Moon orbit at the beginning of this lunation cycle is ∠226° and at the beginning of the next lunar synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠259.5°.
Moon after apogee
6 days since point of apogee on 29 May 2038 at 20:16 in ♈ Aries the lunar orbit is getting narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 9 days until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 14 June 2038 at 15:26 in ♏ Scorpio.
The Moon is 388 423 km(241 355 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 9 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 363 752 km(226 025 mi).
Moon in ascending node
Moon is in ascending node in ♋ Cancer at 06:06 crossing the ecliptic from South to North. Lunar position remains north of if for the upcoming 12 days until Moon's next descending node later on 18 June 2038 at 02:42 in ♑ Capricorn.
At 09:24 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠23.031°. Over the upcoming 12 days the lunar orbit is going to tilt southward to face maximum declination of ∠-23.039° at the point of next southern standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 18 June 2038 at 05:58.
