Synodic month length 29.37 days

The length of the lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes. It is 57 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 shorter than mean

The length of the current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 2 hours and 16 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠294.6°

At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠294.6°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠320.2°.

Moon before perigee

9 days after point of perigee on 23 June 2099 at 09:41 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 6 days, until the Moon reaches the point of next apogee on 8 July 2099 at 15:42 in ♓ Pisces.

Distance to Moon 389 821 km

The Moon is 389 821 km (242 224 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 6 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 404 420 km (251 295 mi).

Moon before ascending node

7 days after descending node on 25 June 2099 at 06:00 in ♎ Libra. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 6 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 8 July 2099 at 23:54 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

1 day since the previous standstill on 1 July 2099 at 18:12 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-28.409°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 13 days to face maximum declination of ∠28.454° at the point of next northern standstill on 16 July 2099 at 05:09 in ♊ Gemini.

Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy

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