Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 38 minutes. It is 15 minutes longer 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 6 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 3 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠357°

The true anomaly is ∠357°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠12.4°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 06:38. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 26 February 2059 at 13:16 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 25 March 2059 at 20:15 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 357 773 km

This perigee Moon is 357 773 km (222 310 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 735 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 583 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 6 March 2059 at 00:53 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 18 March 2059 at 12:04 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

22 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 8 March 2059 at 23:34 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-26.323°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠26.421° at the point of next northern standstill on 21 March 2059 at 15:46 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.
