Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 240 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 14 minutes. It is 1 hour and 18 minutes longer than next lunation 241 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 30 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 39 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠296.1°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠296.1°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠321.4°. 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 23 June 2019 at 07:50 in ♓ Pisces. 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 5 July 2019 at 04:54 in ♌ Leo.

Distance to Moon 377 598 km

Moon is 377 598 km (234 629 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves closer next 3 days until perigee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 363 729 km (226 011 mi).

Moon before ascending node

12 days after its descending node on 19 June 2019 at 01:49 in ♑ Capricorn, 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 3 July 2019 at 06:53 in ♋ Cancer.

Moon before northern standstill

12 days after previous South standstill on 18 June 2019 at 15:33 in ♑ Capricorn, when Moon has reached southern declination of ∠-22.381°. Next day the lunar orbit moves northward to face North declination of ∠22.379° in the next northern standstill on 2 July 2019 at 22:02 in ♋ Cancer.
