Synodic month length 29.72 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 10 minutes. It is 1 hour and 52 minutes shorter 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 26 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 37 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠116.3°

The true anomaly is ∠116.3°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠148.4°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 14 October 2079 at 02:01 in ♊ Gemini. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 29 October 2079 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 393 348 km

The Moon is 393 348 km (244 415 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 274 km (251 826 mi).

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 16 October 2079 at 01:29 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.379°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 5 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.363° at the point of next southern standstill on 29 October 2079 at 22:08 in ♐ Sagittarius.

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.
