Next Full Moon is the Snow Moon of February 2092 after 22 days on 23 February 2092 at 05:29.

Synodic month length 29.56 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 13 hours and 26 minutes. It is 1 hour and 28 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 42 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 21 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠40.9°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠40.9°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠69.4°.

Moon before apogee

13 days after point of apogee on 18 January 2092 at 05:57 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next day, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 2 February 2092 at 09:05 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 363 692 km

The Moon is 363 692 km (225 988 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next day until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 369 678 km (229 707 mi).

Moon after ascending node

5 days after ascending node on 26 January 2092 at 01:05 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 7 February 2092 at 23:08 in ♒ Aquarius.

Moon before southern standstill

8 days since the previous standstill on 22 January 2092 at 14:14 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠19.448°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 4 days to face maximum declination of ∠-19.423° at the point of next southern standstill on 4 February 2092 at 17:30 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 7 February 2092 at 15:03 in ♒ Aquarius 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.
