Synodic month length 29.35 days

29 days, 8 hours and 26 minutes is the length of new lunation 129. It is 58 minutes longer than next lunation 130 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠311.3°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠311.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠332.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon before perigee

8 days after point of apogee on 3 June 2010 at 16:50 in ♒ Aquarius. The lunar orbit is getting closer, while the Moon is moving inward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 3 days, until it get to the point of next perigee on 15 June 2010 at 14:54 in ♋ Cancer.

Distance to Moon 375 063 km

Moon is 375 063 km (233 053 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 365 937 km (227 383 mi).

Moon before descending node

12 days after its ascending node on 30 May 2010 at 18:07 in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next day, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 13 June 2010 at 21:54 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon in northern standstill

At 07:06 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠25.030°. Next 12 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-25.038° in its southern standstill point on 25 June 2010 at 05:09 in ♐ Sagittarius.
