Synodic month length 29.61 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 14 hours and 42 minutes. It is 53 minutes shorter 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 1 hour and 58 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 5 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠83.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠83.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠120.7°.

Moon before perigee

8 days after point of perigee on 15 February 2039 at 17:30 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 1 March 2039 at 22:42 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 392 521 km

The Moon is 392 521 km (243 901 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 389 km (251 276 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 18 February 2039 at 09:34 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 March 2039 at 09:49 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

19 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 after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 19 February 2039 at 06:19 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-24.002°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠24.115° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 March 2039 at 12:11 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 14 days

In 14 days on 10 March 2039 at 16:35 in ♍ Virgo the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
