Synodic month length 29.37 days

Length of current 92 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 51 minutes. It is 2 hours and 8 minutes shorter than next lunation 93 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 53 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 16 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠38.7°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠38.7°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠64.2°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon in apogee

Moon is reaching point of apogee on this date at 14:25, this is 11 days after last perigee on 12 June 2007 at 17:07 in ♉ Taurus.

3 days after its descending node on 20 June 2007 at 19:32 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 July 2007 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon before southern standstill

9 days after previous North standstill on 15 June 2007 at 08:31 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.212°. Next 5 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.215° in the next southern standstill on 29 June 2007 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.
