Synodic month length 29.41 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 53 minutes. This is the year's shortest synodic month of 2094. It is 39 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 2 hours and 51 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 18 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠24.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠24.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠45.7°.

Moon at perigee

Moon is at perigee at 03:26. It is 15 days after previous apogee on 27 March 2094 at 05:18 in ♌ Leo. Lunar orbit is going to widen while the Moon is moving away from the Earth over the next 11 days, until point of next apogee on 23 April 2094 at 23:58 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 365 456 km

This perigee Moon is 365 456 km (227 084 mi) away from Earth. It is 2 948 km closer than the mean perigee distance, but it is still 4 900 km further than the closest perigee of 21st century.

Moon after descending node

4 days after descending node on 7 April 2094 at 19:27 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 8 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 20 April 2094 at 16:57 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon after southern standstill

4 days since the previous standstill on 7 April 2094 at 19:58 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-22.963°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠23.077° at the point of next northern standstill on 20 April 2094 at 20:13 in ♋ Cancer.

Syzygy in 2 days

In 2 days on 15 April 2094 at 01:37 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.
