Synodic month length 29.41 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 48 minutes. It is 59 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 2 hours and 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠284.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠284.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠313.1°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 07:01. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 28 June 2073 at 01:09 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 25 July 2073 at 19:45 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 369 523 km

This perigee Moon is 369 523 km (229 611 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest perigee of 2073. It is 7 015 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 833 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 8 July 2073 at 01:28 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 9 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 21 July 2073 at 02:27 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

6 days since the previous standstill on 4 July 2073 at 22:14 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.610°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.591° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 July 2073 at 20:15 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 19 July 2073 at 05:04 in ♑ Capricorn the Moon is going to be in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
