Synodic month length 29.78 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 18 hours and 41 minutes. It is 1 hour and 58 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 longer than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 5 hours and 57 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 1 hour and 6 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

True anomaly ∠175.1°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠175.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠199.5°.

Moon before perigee

7 days after point of perigee on 6 March 2099 at 16:59 in ♍ Virgo. 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 19 March 2099 at 19:55 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 391 473 km

The Moon is 391 473 km (243 250 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 406 404 km (252 528 mi).

Moon after descending node

6 days after descending node on 8 March 2099 at 04:56 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 7 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 22 March 2099 at 06:44 in ♈ Aries.

Moon at southern standstill

At 09:20 the Moon is meeting its standstill point to reach South declination of ∠-28.667°. Over the next 14 days the lunar orbit is going to extend northward to face maximum declination of ∠28.678° at the point of next standstill in ♋ Cancer on 29 March 2099 at 02:47.

Syzygy in 7 days

In 7 days on 21 March 2099 at 22:46 in ♓ Pisces 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.
