Synodic month length 29.41 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 56 minutes. It is 6 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 48 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 21 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠358.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠358.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠14°.

Moon before apogee

12 days after point of apogee on 14 February 2041 at 23:03 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 1 March 2041 at 19:56 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 364 780 km

The Moon is 364 780 km (226 664 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 2 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 003 km (222 453 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 22 February 2041 at 16:13 in ♏ Scorpio. 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 7 March 2041 at 03:29 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 26 February 2041 at 07:28 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.040°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.133° at the point of next northern standstill on 11 March 2041 at 02:59 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 3 days

In 3 days on 2 March 2041 at 15:39 in ♓ Pisces 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.
