Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 21 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 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 23 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 46 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠88.5°

The true anomaly is ∠88.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠123.4°.

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 22 May 2041 at 01:18 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 June 2041 at 13:34 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 384 967 km

The Moon is 384 967 km (239 207 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 7 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 429 km (251 301 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 28 May 2041 at 04:17 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 11 June 2041 at 14:42 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before northern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 19 May 2041 at 01:39 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.362°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.334° at the point of next northern standstill on 1 June 2041 at 03:42 in ♋ Cancer.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
