Synodic month length 29.32 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 7 hours and 44 minutes. It is 54 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 5 hours shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 9 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠341.2°

The true anomaly is ∠341.2°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠356.9°.

Moon before apogee

11 days after point of apogee on 20 April 2079 at 06:49 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 May 2079 at 13:49 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous apogeeNext perigee

Distance to Moon 365 766 km

The Moon is 365 766 km (227 276 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 262 km (223 235 mi).

Moon after ascending node

1 day after ascending node on 30 April 2079 at 18:47 in ♈ Aries. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 13 May 2079 at 20:46 in ♎ Libra.

Draconic month

1 day since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 22 April 2079 at 00:03 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.062°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.041° at the point of next northern standstill on 5 May 2079 at 02:09 in ♋ Cancer.

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.
