Synodic month length 29.75 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 2 minutes. It is 14 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 5 hours and 18 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 45 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠122.6°

The true anomaly is ∠122.6°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠154.1°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 17 January 2082 at 16:31 in ♌ Leo. 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 2 February 2082 at 18:11 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 394 661 km

The Moon is 394 661 km (245 231 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 315 km (251 851 mi).

Moon before ascending node

10 days after descending node on 17 January 2082 at 15:31 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 31 January 2082 at 01:22 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

2 days since the previous standstill on 25 January 2082 at 12:10 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.230°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 11 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.278° at the point of next northern standstill on 9 February 2082 at 02:32 in ♊ Gemini.

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.
