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 before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 24 June 2007 at 14:25 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 6 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 9 July 2007 at 21:38 in ♉ Taurus.

Distance to Moon 376 868 km

Moon is 376 868 km (234 175 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 6 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 368 534 km (228 996 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 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 day, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 5 July 2007 at 01:39 in ♓ Pisces.

Moon after southern standstill

3 days after previous South standstill on 29 June 2007 at 15:41 in ♐ Sagittarius, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-28.215°. Next 9 days the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠28.251° in the next northern standstill on 12 July 2007 at 16:38 in ♊ Gemini.
