Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes. It is 1 hour and 44 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 3 hours and 2 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 7 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠324.8°

The true anomaly is ∠324.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠343.2°.

Moon before apogee

10 days after point of apogee on 8 April 2061 at 18:12 in ♏ Scorpio. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 21 April 2061 at 03:02 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 367 024 km

The Moon is 367 024 km (228 058 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 358 852 km (222 980 mi).

Moon in ascending node

New draconic month

At 10:03 the Moon completes the previous draconic month and enters the new one.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 11 April 2061 at 10:51 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.439°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.417° at the point of next northern standstill on 24 April 2061 at 08:45 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.
