Synodic month length 29.44 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 10 hours and 29 minutes. It is 46 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 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠286°

The true anomaly is ∠286°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠314.8°.

Moon before apogee

8 days after point of apogee on 12 September 2074 at 02:10 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 23 September 2074 at 22:46 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 376 993 km

The Moon is 376 993 km (234 253 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 3 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 365 307 km (226 991 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after ascending node on 16 September 2074 at 20:14 in ♋ Cancer. 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 29 September 2074 at 14:52 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon after northern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 15 September 2074 at 04:44 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.157°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-21.263° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 September 2074 at 04:37 in ♑ Capricorn.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

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