It is 4 hours and 6 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length. True anomaly ∠310.8° At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠310.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠332.7°. Moon before perigee 10 days after point of perigee on 10 March 2008 at 21:39 in ♈ Aries.

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 26 March 2008 lunaf.com the moon on 21 april 2008 20:13 in ♏ Scorpio. Previous perigee - Next apogee Distance to Moon 394 154 km The Moon is 394 154 km ( 244 916 mi) away from Earth and getting further over the next 5 days until the point apogee when Earth-Moon distance is going to be 405 094 km ( 251 714 mi).

Moon after descending node 2 days after descending node on 19 March 2008 at 02:53 in ♌ Leo. The Moon is located south of the ecliptic over the following 12 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from South to North in ascending node on 2 April 2008 at 15:18 in ♒ Aquarius.

Previous node - Next node Draconic month 15 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♒ Aquarius, the Moon is navigating from the second to the final part of the cycle.

Previous - Current draconic month - Next Moon after northern standstill 7 days since the previous standstill on 14 March 2008 at 11:33 in ♊ Gemini when the Moon has reached North declination of ∠27.985°, the lunar orbit is extending southward over the next 7 days to face maximum declination of ∠-27.898° at the point of next southern standstill on 28 March 2008 at 16:00 in ♐ Sagittarius. Previous standstill - Next standstill Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy The Moon is in a Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and thus forming Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy alignment.
