Synodic month length 29.33 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 59 minutes. It is 34 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 4 hours and 45 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠313.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠313.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠333.8°.

Moon before perigee

11 days after point of perigee on 19 June 2072 at 10:24 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 4 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 5 July 2072 at 05:53 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 396 408 km

The Moon is 396 408 km (246 317 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 4 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 994 km (251 652 mi).

Moon before descending node

8 days after ascending node on 21 June 2072 at 16:43 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 5 July 2072 at 13:03 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

8 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 01:20 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-18.704°. Over the next 13 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠18.668° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 14 July 2072 at 10:48.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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