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 after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 26 April 2041 at 16:51 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 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 May 2041 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 369 522 km

The Moon is 369 522 km (229 610 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 10 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 308 km (251 225 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 17 April 2041 at 22:27 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 30 April 2041 at 20:05 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

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

Moon before northern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 21 April 2041 at 19:43 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.368°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.379° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 May 2041 at 19:15 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 30 April 2041 at 11:46 in ♉ Taurus 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.
