The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 54 minutes. It is 1 hour and 1 minute 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 10 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 6 hours and 53 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠73.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠73.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠109.2°.

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 15 April 2093 at 13:30 in ♐ Sagittarius. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 14 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 1 May 2093 at 06:12 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 363 532 km

The Moon is 363 532 km (225 888 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 14 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 751 km (251 501 mi).

Moon before descending node

11 days after ascending node on 5 April 2093 at 10:03 in ♌ Leo. 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 18 April 2093 at 13:39 in ♑ Capricorn.

Moon before southern standstill

12 days since the previous standstill on 3 April 2093 at 16:04 in ♋ Cancer when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠21.174°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next day to face maximum declination of ∠-21.301° at the point of next southern standstill on 17 April 2093 at 04:44 in ♑ Capricorn.

Syzygy in 9 days

In 9 days on 25 April 2093 at 16:12 in ♈ Aries 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.
