Synodic month length 29.64 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes. It is 3 hours and 7 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 2 hours and 40 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 4 hours and 23 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠214.3°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠214.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠246°.

Moon at apogee

Moon is at apogee at 10:58. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 12 April 2090 at 12:39 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 15 days, until point of next perigee on 10 May 2090 at 05:31 in ♎ Libra.

Distance to Moon 405 000 km

This apogee Moon is 405 000 km (251 655 mi) away from Earth. It is 408 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 1 709 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 12 April 2090 at 16:39 in ♍ Virgo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 2 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 26 April 2090 at 12:13 in ♓ Pisces.

Previous nodeNext node

Draconic month

11 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.

Moon after southern standstill

5 days since the previous standstill on 19 April 2090 at 02:47 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.213°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.290° at the point of next northern standstill on 3 May 2090 at 15:57 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 5 days

In 5 days on 29 April 2090 at 19:12 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.
