Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 29 minutes. It is 1 hour and 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠358°

The true anomaly is ∠358°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠13.3°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 21:44. It is 13 days after previous apogee on 8 October 2082 at 14:12 in ♈ Aries. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 14 days, until point of next apogee on 4 November 2082 at 15:15 in ♈ Aries.

Distance to Moon 356 831 km

This perigee Moon is 356 831 km (221 725 mi) away from Earth. This is the year's closest perigee of 2082. It is 5 677 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 406 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 17 October 2082 at 11:28 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 29 October 2082 at 23:42 in ♒ Aquarius.

Draconic month

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

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 12 October 2082 at 18:49 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.713°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.625° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 October 2082 at 12:18 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.
