Synodic month length 29.4 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 16 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 3 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 6 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠330.8°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠330.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠347.9°.

Moon before perigee

12 days after point of perigee on 6 March 2087 at 18:05 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 2 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 March 2087 at 11:38 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 402 275 km

The Moon is 402 275 km (249 962 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 2 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 772 km (252 135 mi).

Moon before ascending node

9 days after descending node on 9 March 2087 at 22:37 in ♉ Taurus. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 4 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 24 March 2087 at 01:56 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 11 March 2087 at 11:26 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.096°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 6 days to face maximum declination of ∠-20.961° at the point of next southern standstill on 25 March 2087 at 23:36 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
