Synodic month length 29.71 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 57 minutes. It is 2 hours and 12 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 4 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 50 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠179.1°

The true anomaly is ∠179.1°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠203.1°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 11:30. It is 14 days after previous perigee on 15 March 2082 at 04:17 in ♎ Libra. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next perigee on 12 April 2082 at 15:53 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 406 577 km

This apogee Moon is 406 577 km (252 635 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's farthest apogee of 2082. It is 1 169 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 132 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon after ascending node

2 days after ascending node on 26 March 2082 at 13:54 in ♒ Aquarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 11 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 9 April 2082 at 20:43 in ♌ Leo.

Draconic month

2 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon before northern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 20 March 2082 at 23:38 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.248°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.159° at the point of next northern standstill on 4 April 2082 at 18:02 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.
