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°

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

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 17 June 2041 at 11:48 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 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 3 July 2041 at 06:46 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 366 583 km

The Moon is 366 583 km (227 784 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 266 km (251 821 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 11 June 2041 at 14:42 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 24 June 2041 at 08:57 in ♉ Taurus.

Moon after southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 15 June 2041 at 09:11 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-27.308°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠27.286° at the point of next northern standstill on 28 June 2041 at 10:46 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 6 days

In 6 days on 28 June 2041 at 11:17 in ♋ Cancer 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.
