Synodic month length 29.7 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 16 hours and 43 minutes. It is 2 hours and 56 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 3 hours and 59 minutes longer than the mean synodic month length. It is 3 hours and 4 minutes shorter compared to 21st century's longest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠199.5°

The true anomaly is ∠199.5°. At the beginning of the next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠227.5°.

Moon after apogee

1 day after point of apogee on 19 March 2099 at 19:55 in ♓ Pisces. The lunar orbit is getting narrow, while the Moon is moving towards the Earth. It will keep this direction over the next 13 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next perigee on 4 April 2099 at 03:23 in ♍ Virgo.

Distance to Moon 404 667 km

The Moon is 404 667 km (251 448 mi) away from Earth and getting closer over the next 13 days until the point perigee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 359 339 km (223 283 mi).

Moon before ascending node

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

Draconic month

26 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 after southern standstill

7 days since the previous standstill on 14 March 2099 at 09:20 in ♑ Capricorn when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.667°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.678° at the point of next northern standstill on 29 March 2099 at 02:47 in ♋ Cancer.

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.
