Synodic month length 29.48 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 11 hours and 25 minutes. It is 1 hour and 37 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 19 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 50 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠250°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠250°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠284.5°.

Moon after perigee

4 days after point of perigee on 15 June 2073 at 21:26 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 7 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 June 2073 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 10 June 2073 at 22:06 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 23 June 2073 at 19:45 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon at southern standstill

At 11:20 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-19.607°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠19.610° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 4 July 2073 at 22:14.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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