Synodic month length 29.56 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 28 minutes. It is 1 hour and 36 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 44 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 19 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠218.8°

The true anomaly is ∠218.8°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠250.9°.

Moon after apogee

3 days after point of apogee on 20 June 2074 at 21:28 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 12 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 6 July 2074 at 14:26 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 400 481 km

The Moon is 400 481 km (248 847 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 12 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 362 554 km (225 281 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after descending node on 12 June 2074 at 10:42 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 26 June 2074 at 23:07 in ♋ Cancer.

Draconic month

24 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♋ Cancer, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

13 days since the previous standstill on 10 June 2074 at 21:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-20.986°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠21.016° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 June 2074 at 05:18 in ♋ Cancer.

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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