Synodic month length 29.74 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 43 minutes. It is 1 hour and 15 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 4 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 4 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠115.9°

The true anomaly is ∠115.9°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠149°.

Moon before perigee

10 days after point of perigee on 11 December 2098 at 21:02 in ♋ Cancer. The lunar orbit is getting widen, while the Moon is moving away from the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 5 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 27 December 2098 at 21:01 in ♒ Aquarius.

Distance to Moon 393 820 km

The Moon is 393 820 km (244 708 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 186 km (251 771 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after descending node on 16 December 2098 at 15:17 in ♎ Libra. 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 30 December 2098 at 20:34 in ♈ Aries.

Draconic month

18 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♈ Aries, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Moon at southern standstill

At 16:33 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.323°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.354° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 6 January 2099 at 00:46.

Previous standstillNext standstill

Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy

The Moon is in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
