Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 48 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2086. It is 43 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 56 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 13 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠18.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠18.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠37.1°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 10 May 2086 at 18:33 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 11 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 May 2086 at 15:25 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 366 255 km

The Moon is 366 255 km (227 580 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 11 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 729 km (251 487 mi).

Moon before descending node

9 days after ascending node on 1 May 2086 at 17:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 3 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 14 May 2086 at 12:33 in ♊ Gemini.

Moon before northern standstill

9 days since the previous standstill on 2 May 2086 at 01:28 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.482°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 3 days to face maximum declination of ∠22.466° at the point of next northern standstill on 14 May 2086 at 20:32 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 1 day

In 1 day on 13 May 2086 at 01:41 in ♉ Taurus the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
