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.

Lunar orbit position on

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 before perigee

8 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 28 June 2073 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 399 324 km

The Moon is 399 324 km (248 128 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 196 km (251 156 mi).

Moon after descending node

1 day after descending node on 23 June 2073 at 19:45 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 13 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 July 2073 at 01:28 in ♌ Leo.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 20 June 2073 at 11:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-19.607°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 10 days to face maximum declination of ∠19.610° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 July 2073 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 10 days

In 10 days on 5 July 2073 at 07:16 in ♋ Cancer 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.
