Synodic month length 29.45 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 49 minutes. It is 1 hour and 23 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 1 hour and 55 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 14 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠323.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠323.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠342.5°.

Moon before apogee

7 days after point of apogee on 20 February 2060 at 10:06 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 3 March 2060 at 16:59 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 382 530 km

The Moon is 382 530 km (237 693 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 5 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 816 km (222 958 mi).

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 22 February 2060 at 12:39 in ♏ Scorpio. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 6 March 2060 at 11:03 in ♉ Taurus.

Draconic month

19 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 00:51 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-27.445°. Over the next 12 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠27.537° at the point of next standstill in ♊ Gemini on 10 March 2060 at 14:36.

Syzygy in 4 days

In 4 days on 2 March 2060 at 16:11 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.
