Synodic month length 29.39 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 18 minutes. It is 22 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to increasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at apogee (∠180°).

Lunation length shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 26 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 43 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠355.5°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠355.5°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠10.8°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 17:12. It is 14 days after previous apogee on 9 March 2077 at 03:31 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 12 days, until point of next apogee on 5 April 2077 at 09:27 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 357 576 km

This perigee Moon is 357 576 km (222 187 mi) away from Earth. It is 4 932 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 12 780 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 16 March 2077 at 09:32 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 5 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 28 March 2077 at 20:39 in ♊ Gemini.

Draconic month

21 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♊ Gemini, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 18 March 2077 at 14:47 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.499°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.601° at the point of next northern standstill on 31 March 2077 at 04:33 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 24 March 2077 at 08:24 in ♈ Aries 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.
