Synodic month length 29.51 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 17 minutes. It is 2 hours and 35 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 27 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 42 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠246°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠246°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠280.8°.

Moon before perigee

11 days after point of perigee on 10 May 2090 at 05:31 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 22 May 2090 at 05:49 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 405 186 km

The Moon is 405 186 km (251 771 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next day until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 185 km (251 149 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 9 May 2090 at 23:10 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 23 May 2090 at 16:27 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 16 May 2090 at 12:41 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-18.355°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 9 days to face maximum declination of ∠18.414° at the point of next northern standstill on 30 May 2090 at 23:17 in ♊ Gemini.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 29 May 2090 at 07:29 in ♊ Gemini 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.
