Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 53 minutes. It is 1 hour and 11 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 3 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 18 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠33.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠33.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠57.3°.

Moon after apogee

5 days after point of apogee on 29 May 2042 at 07:12 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 10 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 13 June 2042 at 22:24 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 394 355 km

The Moon is 394 355 km (245 041 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 10 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 367 563 km (228 393 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 31 May 2042 at 00:41 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 13 June 2042 at 12:16 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 21 May 2042 at 23:31 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.143°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-28.094° at the point of next southern standstill on 5 June 2042 at 11:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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