Synodic month length 29.79 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 19 hours and 2 minutes. It is 22 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 6 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠148.4°

The true anomaly is ∠148.4°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠174.6°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 10 November 2079 at 21:38 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 3 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 26 November 2079 at 15:51 in ♑ Capricorn.

Distance to Moon 401 935 km

The Moon is 401 935 km (249 751 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 3 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 258 km (252 437 mi).

Moon after descending node

3 days after descending node on 20 November 2079 at 06:11 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 4 December 2079 at 19:50 in ♈ Aries.

Moon before southern standstill

11 days since the previous standstill on 12 November 2079 at 08:30 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠28.320°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 2 days to face maximum declination of ∠-28.260° at the point of next southern standstill on 26 November 2079 at 04:46 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.
