Synodic month length 29.71 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 56 minutes. It is 1 hour and 8 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 12 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠161.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠161.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠185.7°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 16:08. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 28 March 2047 at 11:07 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 24 April 2047 at 13:11 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 356 789 km

This perigee Moon is 356 789 km (221 698 mi) away from Earth. It is 5 719 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 13 567 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

6 days after descending node on 4 April 2047 at 05:01 in ♋ Cancer. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 16 April 2047 at 14:32 in ♑ Capricorn.

Draconic month

20 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 1 April 2047 at 17:57 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠25.632°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠-25.536° at the point of next southern standstill on 14 April 2047 at 10:31 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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