Synodic month length 29.43 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 17 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠32.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠32.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠56.2°.

Moon before perigee

8 days after point of perigee on 30 March 2041 at 02:37 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 10 April 2041 at 23:41 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 398 772 km

The Moon is 398 772 km (247 785 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 998 km (251 654 mi).

Moon after ascending node

4 days after ascending node on 3 April 2041 at 10:39 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 17 April 2041 at 22:27 in ♏ Scorpio.

Draconic month

4 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at northern standstill

At 10:33 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach North declination of ∠27.319°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend southward to face maximum declination of ∠-27.368° at the point of next standstill in ♑ Capricorn on 21 April 2041 at 19:43.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 16 April 2041 at 12:00 in ♎ Libra 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.
