Synodic month length 29.73 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 24 minutes. It is 3 hours and 12 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Lunation length longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠207.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠207.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠238.6°.

Moon before perigee

6 days after point of perigee on 1 March 2045 at 18:43 in ♌ Leo. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 13 March 2045 at 18:23 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 391 419 km

The Moon is 391 419 km (243 216 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 311 km (251 849 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 2 March 2045 at 13:33 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 March 2045 at 12:51 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days since the previous standstill on 26 February 2045 at 01:04 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.188°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.164° at the point of next southern standstill on 10 March 2045 at 22:47 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 18 March 2045 at 17:15 in ♓ Pisces 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.
